How to make it

  • In a large Dutch oven or soup pot heat the oil on medium.
  • Add the onion and carrot and a good pinch of salt and slowly cook until softened, 5-8 minutes.
  • Add the garlic and cook just for a minute, then add the spices and stir to coat the vegetables.
  • Add the lentils, broth, and tomatoes and another good pinch of salt, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, 15-20 minutes, until the lentils are tender.
  • Tranfer to a blender or processor and puree as much as you like.
  • Taste for seasoning and add more water or broth for a more "soupy" consistency.

    This soup was amazing! It was super quick and easy, using ingredients generally found in my house and my husband and I went wild for it!

    Thanks, vj, I'm glad you like it! Good idea on the soy sauce, or you could try adding some sherry and letting it cook down before putting in the lentils and broth. That could boost the flavor also.

    Eilen, this was great! I used a smidge more cumin and paprika than you asked for, and a dash of soy sauce (my stock was a little underseasoned). Excellent soup. I think this will got in our weekly repetoire!
