Curried Lentil Soup
- 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
- 1 medium onion, chopped
- 2 large garlic cloves, chopped, divided
- 2 tablespoons curry powder, or more to taste
- 1 cup French green lentils
- 4 cups water
- 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 green onions, thinly sliced
In a large heavy pot, heat half the olive oil over medium heat until shimmering. Add onion, season with a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook until onion is translucent, 5-7 minutes. Add garlic and cook for an additional 2 minutes, then stir in curry powder. Cook, stirring constantly to prevent spices from burning, until spices are fragrant.
Add lentils and water and bring to a boil. Season with salt and pepper, reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer until lentils are tender, about 30 minutes.
Divide amongst soup bowls and serve garnished with green onion and with lemons on the side.
