Instructions

1
Slice the onion. Peel the pumpkin and chop into medium cube size. Lastly, wash and slice the spinach.
2
Pour a drizzle of oil into a pot and lightly fry the onion and pumpkin over medium heat for 5 minutes. Now add the lentils, some salt, and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Add the spinach and the broth. Make sure that everything is covered by the broth, and add a pinch of cumin.
3
Cover the pot with a lid and let it cook for approximately 20-25 minutes (if you're using a pressure cooker, it'll be less time). Try the soup and correct the amount of salt needed, if necessary. It's that easy!

Tips & Tricks

If you don't have broth, don't worry! You can add water instead and it'll come out great.

If you feel that the soup is too dry when the lentils are cooking then you can add more broth to the pot. You will know when it is necessary or not.
