- 1/4 cup avocado or olive oil

- 2 teaspoons onion powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
- 3 Tablespoons gluten free tamari
- salt and pepper to taste
- 1 cup chopped baby spinach (optional)
- Heat a large stockpot to medium heat. Add oil, onions, carrots and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes.
- Add the remaining ingredients except spinach and bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to a high simmer and place lid halfway. Cook for about 30 minutes or until lentils are tender.

- If you want to avoid Madras powder because it’s too spicy, you can substitute Garam Masala which is not spicy but extremely flavorful. I highly recommend using World Spice Merchants for your Indian spice blends. I am not an affiliate for them, I just love their blends and the spices are so fresh and flavorful unlike any other I have used.
