Cooking Time1 hr

Ingredients

  • 1 medium onion, chopped (3/4 cup)
  • 1 cup lentils
  • 3 cups vegetable broth or water
  • 3/4 pound pumpkin, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes (about 3 cups)
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/4 cup fresh parsley, minced
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/3 cup scallions, sliced
