Cook Mirepoix: Heat the olive oil in a Dutch Oven or a soup pot. Add the chopped onion, carrot and garlic. Cook for about 5 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
Make Soup Base: Add the spices (turmeric, cumin, smoked paprika) and stir. Next, add the red lentils, tomato paste and stir in the chicken broth until the tomato paste dissolves.
Add the Chicken: Add the shredded chicken, bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for about 25 to 30 minutes, or until the lentils are cooked through. You will have to stir occasionally.
Finish and Serve: Taste for seasoning and adjust with salt and pepper as needed. Garnish with parsley and green onions. Serve.
