1 large or 2 small cloves of garlic
1/2 TB turmeric
1 large can chopped tomatoes
1 cup water
organic stock cube (whatever amount goes in 1 cup water)
1 cup small red lentils
Finely chop onion and dump it into your warmed soup pot with the oil on medium heat. You may want to add a teeny bit of water as you're looking to sweat the onions- not brown them. Add in the garlic after 3-4 minutes.
Add turmeric and cumin to the onions.
Stir the onion mix often and while that's "sweating", chop your peppers into tiny cubes.
Add the peppers to the pot and stir it all up for a minute or two.
Add the tomatoes, water and stock.
Bring to a boil, then simmer on low for 30 minutes.
You can use whatever veggies you have on hand, incidentally. This is how most of my soups are made- by looking at what ingredients I have, then making something out of them, rather than the other way around. :)
