Lentil Soup with Lemon and Dill

Directions

  1. In a large saucepan heat oil over medium-high heat. Add cumin seeds. Cook 30 seconds or until toasted and fragrant. Stir in stock, water, lentils, carrots, garlic, bay leaf, and salt. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, covered, 25 minutes or until lentils are tender. Remove bay leaf.
  2. Add lemon juice to the lentil mixture. Season with pepper. Serve with with yogurt, dill, and green onions.

From the Test Kitchen

Why use whole cumin seeds instead of ground? When toasted, the seeds release their oils, making them nutty and aromatic. Ground cumin lacks that depth of flavor and can become almost dusty in this soup.

I actually would rate this soup as 5 stars. It uses pantry staples, is quick to make and has a lot of flavor. My family loved it. I took it to a St Patrick's Day potluck and work, and everyone there loved it. Will make it again and keep it in my regular rotation.
