DIRECTIONS

  • Pick over the red lentils and discard any misshapen lentils or stones.
  • Rinse lentils and drain.
  • In a saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter.
  • Add the onion and saute, stirring occasionally, until tender and translucent (8 to 10 minutes).
  • Add the coriander, cumin, ginger, turmeric, and cayenne and stir to mix well.
  • Reduce the heat to low and cook, stirring occasionally, to release the flavors of the spices (2 to 3 minutes).
  • Add the lentils and then gradually add the water or stock, stirring constantly.
  • Bring to a boil over high heat, reduce the heat to low, cover partially, and simmer until the lentils are very soft (30 to 40 minutes).
  • Remove from the heat and let cool slightly.
  • Working in batches, puree the soup in a blender or food processor.
  • Return the soup to a clean saucepan and place over medium heat.
  • Stir in the tomatoes and lemon juice and cook until heated through.
  • Season with salt and black pepper.
