German Lentil Soup
From Happy Herbivore
serves 3 (gluten-free) (soy-free)
1 small onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 1/2 tsp ground coriander, divided
2 carrots, skinned and sliced
1 cup lentils
1 potato, diced
3 cups vegetable broth, divided
Line a medium pot with a thin layer of water (or broth) and saute onions and garlic over high heat until onions are translucent, about 2 minutes.
Add cumin and 1/2 tsp coriander, then stir to combine.
Add carrots, plus another splash of water, if necessary., and cook for a minute.
Then add lentils, diced potato and 2 cups broth. Cover, bring to a boil and simmer until lentils are softer and liquid has evaporated, about 40 minutes.
Stir in remaining 1 tsp coriander and a pinch or two of lemon zest. Then add up to an additional 1 cup of broth so it's more stew-like and
not just a pot of lentils and vegetables.
Add salt to taste and more coriander if desired. Garnish with parsley.
