2 teaspoons ground turmeric
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground cardamom
1 (15-ounce/398 mL) can diced tomatoes, with juices

3 1/2 cups (875 mL) low-sodium vegetable broth
1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt, or to taste
Freshly ground black pepper, to taste
Red pepper flakes or cayenne pepper, to taste (for a kick of heat!)
1 (5-ounce/140-gram) package baby spinach
2 teaspoons fresh lime juice, or more to taste

In a large pot, add the oil, onion, and garlic. Add a pinch of salt, stir, and sauté over medium heat for 4 to 5 minutes until the onion softens.

Besides a good amount of fiber and protein, lentils also contain several important benefits for overall health and well being.They are also a good source of magnesium, which can help to lower blood pressure.
