Reposted from the other thread

Flying Girl's Lentil Soup

1 pound red lentils
8 cups chicken stock
6 Tablespoon olive oil
1 Tablespoon minced garlic
1/3 cup chopped onion
1/3 cup chopped celery
1/3 cup chopped carrots
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
1/8 cup fresh lemon juice
1 teaspoon pink sea salt

Combine 6 cups chicken stock and lentils a large pot. Set remaining chicken stock aside. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium/low, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes.

While simmering, heat olive oil and garlic in a skillet over medium heat, add carrots and cook for about 5 minutes, then add onion and celery. Stir fry the vegetables 7-10 minutes, until just softened.

Stir vegetables into the lentils and add remaining 2 cups of chicken stock. Season with cumin and sea salt. Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes, or until lentils are tender.

Stir in lemon juice and cilantro and serve.

Makes about 10 servings @ 280 cals./serving
