  1. Heat oil in a heavy-bottomed pot. Saute onion until soft and golden-brown, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and saute until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add cumin, salt, pepper, and 1/8 tsp chili powder. Saute until the spices are fragrant, 2-3 minutes. Add tomato paste and saute until it begins to brown slightly, 2-3 minutes.
  2. Stir in chicken broth, lentils and carrot. Bring to a boil, reduce to a simmer, cover and cook 30 minutes or until lentils are soft.
  3. Remove 2 cups of soup and set aside. Puree the remainder in a blender or with an immersion blender. Return the reserved soup to the pot. Stir in lemon juice and parsley. Drizzle each bowl with 1/2 tsp olive oil and sprinkle with a small pinch of chili powder before serving.
