Ingredients

1 Tbsp. oil
1 large onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
3 carrots, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
1 lb. lentils (I like to use green French lentils)
2 quarts chicken stock or water
1 Tbsp. vegetable broth powder if using water
2 tsp. curry powder
Dash of cayenne pepper
Seasoned salt to taste


In a large soup pot, sauté onion, garlic, carrot and celery in oil until tender. Then add lentils and cover with stock or water by 2-3 inches.


Add spices and simmer over medium heat until lentils are tender (about one hour).


Stir occasionally and adjust seasoning if needed.


You may add water if more broth is desired.

Notes

This soup is inspired by my favorite Indian dish, dal. After a day out in the woods, this soup is fabulous! Easy, super quick and delicious!
