In a large pot, add a few tablespoons of water or oil over medium heat. Add in the diced onion and garlic. Saute until onion is translucent.
Add in all spices and continue to saute, stirring constantly for about 1 minute.
Add in vegetable broth, diced tomatoes, carrots, lentils, and sweet potatoes. Stir until combined and bring to a boil.
Once boiling, reduce to a simmer and cover the pot. Let sit for 30-45minutes.
Once done cooking, stir in the spinach until wilted.
Garnish with parsley. Serve immediately and enjoy!
