Heat oil over medium in a skillet. add onions and garlic and cook over medium-low for 15-20 minutes until partially caramelized.


While these cook, bring stock to a boil. Once boiling, add lentils. Cook 10 minutes.


Use 1/4 cup stock from pot to blend onions into a puree.


Add onion puree and spices to the pot, stirring well. Cook together for 3 minutes.
