Step 4 : Sauté the vegetables

In a pot over medium heat, pour a good amount of olive oil. Sauté the carrots, onions, tomatoes, and minced garlic for about 5 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste. Don't let them cook all the way. We want them to finish cooking in the oven.

Pour your carrots, onions, tomatoes, and minced garlic mixture into the baking tray and transfer it to the preheated oven for about 20 min.

Step 6 : Cook the lentils

While your carrots, onions, tomatoes, and minced garlic mixture is baking, add your lentils with the broth and the water. Mix everything well.

Step 7 : Add spices

Add the cumin and turmeric and keep mixing for about 2 more minutes.

Step 8 : Combine the ingredients

After 20 min, take out your carrots, onions, tomatoes, and minced garlic mixture from the oven and pour it into your soup. Mix everything well.

Step 9 : Simmer the soup

Reduce the heat, put the lid on and let everything simmer for about 20 min.

Step 10 : Add lemon juice

For the final touch, add the lemon juice and mix one last time.

Step 11 : Pour the soup into bowls
