Description

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.

Ingredients

1 tablespoon
olive oil
1  
onion, yellow (chopped)
2 cloves
garlic
5  
carrot (chopped)
2 tablespoons
ginger, fresh (or more for added zing)
1 teaspoon
cumin, ground
1 1/2 cup
lentils, red
6 cups
stock
   
salt
   
pumpkin seeds (for garnish)
   
black pepper

Instructions

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.
