Recipe Ingredients for Tomato Lentil Soup

2 tbs olive oil
1 medium onion
2 tbs green pepper, chopped
2 tbs jalapeņo pepper, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 tsp ginger, minced
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp curry powder
1 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp dry red pepper flakes
1/2 tsp chili powder
2 c vegetable broth, swanson
2 cups water
1 cup dry lentils
16 oz. diced tomato

Recipe Directions for Tomato Lentil Soup

I put all of the ingredients except lentils and tomatoes into a 6 quart pot or pressure cooker, and let it fry until the onions were golden. Then I added the lentil that had been soaking for 4 or 5 hours, and the can of tomatoes. I added the 1 cup of the stock, and brought it to a rolling boil. Then I added the rest of the stock and water, and brought it to a rolling boil once again. I let it simmer for an hour, more or less depending on the desired thick or thinness of the soup. Once cooled, It was a perfect-spicy and delicious. Adding a little salt would have helped bring the flavor out, but I hate that bloat feeling that I get after consuming fair amounts of salt.
