I am not a regular poster, but.. And after years of trying, I think I've managed a lentil soup that tastes close to the one at Aladdin Cafe. I just needed to suck it up and use some tomato sauce.

1/2 onion (1/2 cup)
1 carrot (1/2 cup)
2 cloves garlic
1 small can tomato sauce
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp Turkish spice blend (Penzey's)
6 cup chicken stock (1 large tub)
1 1/3 cup red lentils (rinsed)

Put a little oil in the pan, start cooking the onion and carrot. When the onion is mostly translucent, add the garlic, then the tomato sauce and the spices, then the stock and the lentils. Bring to boil, then simmer 15-20 minutes. When lentils are soft, mash with stick blender. Add salt to taste.
