  1. Warm oil in a very big pot over medium heat. Add onion & cook 3 minutes. Add sweet peppers, hot peppers, carrots, garlic, oregano, cumin & coriander, (which I cuisinart all together), and cook 10 minute or until veggies are soft, stirring often.
  2. Add lentils, broth, tomatoes with their liquid and the water. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer 20 to 30 minutes, or until the lentils are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in the salt and cayenne.
  3. Remove about 1/2 of the soup and CAREFULLY puree in batches in a food processor or blender (blender works better) by pulsing off and on. (WATCH IT! VERY HOT!)
  4. Stir puree back into soup in the pot. Taste and correct seasonings if necessary. Stir in the fresh parsley.
  5. For the Zesty Lime Cream: Combine the sour cream, lime juice and zest in a small bowl. Stir well.
  6. Serve soup with a dollop of the Zesty Lime Cream floating on top.
