  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, sliced
  • 3 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 small red chili, finely chopped
  • 1 tsp. each ground coriander & curry powder
  • 1/2 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 c. yellow lentils, rinsed
  • 3 c. water
  • 3 c. vegetable broth
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • fresh coriander, parsley or rosemary for garnish



1. Heat oil in a large saucepan. Stir in onion, celery and carrots; cook until soft, about three minutes. Add garlic, chili pepper, ground coriander, curry and turmeric and stir for an additional minute.

2. Stir in lentils, water and broth.

3. Bring soup to a boil, then cover and simmer for about 35 minutes, until lentils are very soft. Stir frequently to prevent lentils from sticking.

4. Season with salt and fresh-ground pepper as necessary, and garnish with fresh herbs before serving.
