DIRECTIONS

  • Combine the water, lentils, onions, potatoes, and garlic in a soup pot, cover, and bring to a boil.
  • Reduce the heat to a simmer until everything is tender, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from the heat, and puree until smooth.
  • In small saucepan on low heat, warm the oil until hot but not smoking. Add the cumin, turmeric, and salt and cook, stirring constantly for 2 to 3 minutes, until cumin is fragrant. Take care not to scorch the spices. Set aside for about a minutes or the oil will may splatter when added to the soup.
  • Stir the slightly cooled spices into the soup.
  • Add the lemon juice.
