In a large heavy-bottomed soup pot, sauté onions, celery, carrot and garlic over medium heat for about 5 minutes, just until tender, adding a couple tablespoons of water or broth to prevent sticking.

Add ginger, lentils, turmeric, coriander, No-Chicken Broth and bay leaf, bring to a boil, reducing heat to low and simmer, uncovered for 25 minutes

Remove bay leaf, add spinach, stir and cook for 2 minutes or just until spinach wilts. Add lemon juice and black pepper to taste, stir and serve.
