DIRECTIONS

  • Heat the olive oil in a large pot set over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook for 6 minutes, until the onions become translucent. Add the cumin and continue to cook for another minute.
  • Add the lentils, stock, salt and pepper, and simmer for 30 minutes, or until the lentils have broken down. Add water if the soup needs thinning.
  • Stir in the lemon juice, taste, and reseason if necessary.
  • Ladle into soup bowls and drizzle with olive oil to serve.
  • Tip: There are many varieties of lentils: red, green, yellow, and black. Although green is the easiest to find, any variety works well in this soup.
  • Make ahead: This soup can be made up to 2 days ahead and kept covered in the refrigerator.
