We love dal already, but the added sweetness from carrots and zing from ginger make us extra excited for autumnal meals. We recommend sprinkling a few pumpkin seeds over each bowl before serving.
Saute the onion with the olive oil in a large soup pot. Once translucent, add the whole garlic cloves and chopped carrots, then cook for another 5 minutes. Add the ginger, cumin and lentils, and cook for one more minute. Mash the garlic with a fork.
Add the broth to the pot and bring to a boil. Turn the heat down to low and simmer for about 20 minutes, until lentils and carrots are tender. Puree the soup with a wand blender and add more broth to reach your desired consistency. Serve at once.
