INGREDIENTS
1 1/2 cups red lentils (about 1/2 lb)
5 cups vegetable bouillon or water
1/2 large onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced, or 1/2 tablespoon minced bottled garlic
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1 bay leaf
2 medium size carrots
1 small sweet red pepper
1 green onion, thinly sliced
2 tablespoon chopped fresh coriander
1 to 2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice

In a large saucepan set over high heat, bring lentils and bouillon to a boil. Skim off froth. Stir in chopped onion, garlic, seasonings and bay leaf. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, covered.

Dice carrots and red pepper. Stir into soup. Continue simmering, covered, until carrots are very tender, about 15 minutes. Lentils in soup will need a total of about 20 minutes to cook. Stir in green onion, coriander, lemon juice and pepper. Remove bay leaf.
