    • 2 quarts chicken or vegetable broth
    • 1 pound lentils, picked and rinsed
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 leek, white part only, washed and sliced into julienned strips
    • ½ cup finely chopped shallots
    • ½ cup finely chopped carrot
    • ½ cup finely chopped celery
    • 1 cup peeled and chopped tomatoes
    • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground coriander
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground cumin
    • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper

    Directions:
    Heat olive oil in a large stock pot and set over medium heat.

    Once oil is hot, add the onion, carrot, leeks, celery and salt and sweat until the onions are translucent, approximately 6 to 7 minutes.

    Add the lentils, tomatoes, broth, coriander, cumin and pepper and stir to combine. Increase the heat to high and bring just to a boil.

    Reduce the heat to low, cover and cook at a low simmer until the lentils are tender, approximately 35 to 40 minutes.

    Transfer in small batches to a blender, and purée some or all to your preferred consistency. Serve immediately.
