1 clove garlic, minced
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1 large carrot, diced
1 stalk celery, diced
1 cup red lentils

In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add onion and garlic; cook, stirring occasionally, for 5 minutes or until softened. Stir in curry powder and cumin; cook for 2 minutes. Add carrot, celery, lentils and chicken stock; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, partially covered and stirring occasionally, for 15 to 20 minutes or until soup has thickened.
