Lemony Lentil Soup With Cilantro
I adapted this recipe that was originally published in Gourmet and had for lunch today.  Fantastic!  Don't skip the lemon juice or cilantro.  They make the recipe.

Makes 6 first-course servings.

Ingredients:

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
7 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp salt
1 large carrot, sliced thinly
1 medium onion, choped
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1 15 oz. can lentils
3.5 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
1 cup water
3 tbsp. fresh lemon juice

Preparation:

Puree cilantro with 6 tbsp. oil and 1/4 tsp. sale in a blender until smooth.  Set aside.

Cook onion and carrot in remaining tbsp oil in a heavy saucepan over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until beginning to brown, 4 to 5 minutes.  Add allspice and remaining 3/4 tsp. salt and cook, stirring frequently, 1 minute.  Add lentils, broth, and water and bring to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer, covered, until carrot is soft, about 15 minutes.  Add lemon juice and pepper to taste.  Stir in cilantro puree.

The original recipe did call for 1 cup of dried lentils and an increase of the water from the 1 cup I indicated to 3 cups.
