Yield: 4–6 servings

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 onions, finely chopped

1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan set over medium heat. Add the onions, celery, and carrots. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes, or until the onions are translucent.

2. Add the garlic and curry powder and cook, stirring, for 1 minute more. Add the stock, lentils, and tomato juice.
