Ethiopian Spicy Tomato Lentil Soup

1 cup brown lentils, cooked (I pressure cooked for 18 min w/3 cups of water, and they were perfect--I didn't need to drain them)

After they're cooked, add:
1 can chopped tomatoes
1/2 tsp garlic powder
2 T fresh minced ginger
spice mixture:
2 tsp ground cumin
2 teaspoons hungarian paprika
1 teaspoon ground fenugreek
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground cardomom
1/4 teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt (or more to taste)

Bring to a simmer and let cook for a few minutes.

Come on in for a nice cup of coffee and a chat about my weight loss journey as well as all the healthy recipes I have found, including WW points and/or nutritional information if available. I am eating a vegetarian diet and concentrating on getting healthy and hopefully weight loss will follow. Thank to all my readers for their ongoing support.
