DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the oil in a saucepan. Add the ginger and heat, stirring, for about a minute. Add the ground cumin and stir another 30 seconds.
  • Add the onion and carrots and cook for about 5 minutes over medium heat, stirring frequently.
  • Add the lentils and broth. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer for about 20 minutes, until the lentils are soft.
  • Remove from heat and puree with an immersion blender (or in batches in a blender or food processor). Add salt and pepper to taste, although I usually do not add any.
  • Add a squeeze of lemon in each serving, if you wish - I find that it adds a bright note.
  • Note: A spoonful of plain yogurt is a nice addition.
