Curried Red Lentil Soup

This recipe was shown to me while I was on a weekend getaway with some girlfriends. :) 
It's divine 
- and don't skimp on the fresh lemon juice or avo at the end!! (That's what makes it!)

2 C Red Lentils
8 C water or Broth
2 small onions
4 or 5 cloves garlic
2-3 Carrots - diced
2-3 stalks Celery - diced
1-2 small Zuchinni
2 tsp Paprika
2 tsp Cumin
2 tsp Turmeric
Sea Salt and Pepper to taste
Fresh Lemon wedges

1- Rinse the lentils. Arne't they gorgeous? Place water/broth in pot with lentils. Bring to boil, and then down to simmer. Cook until tender. About 20 minutes. Season with S&P
 2- Chop the onions and Garlic. Add a little Olive Oil to saute pan and saute onion and garlic about 5 minutes. Add the rest of the veggies. Cook until soft. Add the spices to the veggies.  

 3. Add the cooked veggies to the lentils. Serve in bowls squeezed with fresh Lemon Juice. Slice fresh Acovado on top and Plain Greek Yogurt!

You WILL NOT be disappointed!!
