Ingredients

  • 1 cup dried orange lentils
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 1/2 cup chopped carrots
  • 4 cups chicken stock can substitute vegetable stock
  • 1 cup water
  • Spices
  • 2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon coriander
  • 1/2 teaspoon tumeric
  • 1/4 teaspoon curry
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 lemon optional

Instructions

  • Begin by dicing the onion, carrots and celery. Heat a heavy stock pan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and next the vegetables. Sauté for 4-5 minutes until they just begin to soften.
  • Next add the spices. Stir them in and mix well with the vegetables - add the lentils and sauté for another minute and add the stock & water. Increase the heat to high and bring to a boil, reduce to medium low and continue to simmer the soup, stirring occasionally. It will take about another 15 minutes until the lentils are completely cooked.
  • When the lentils are cooked, remove from the heat and finish by squeezing the juice of half a lemon into the soup, stir to combine and serve.
