If you are preparing this soup for a baby:
Use organic tomatoes, carrots, and lentils. (Organic veggies are not easily available; so if you can't find organic tomatoes and carrots, add one tbsp vinegar in water and soak them in that water for 10 minutes. Then wash them properly. This will help remove water-soluble pesticides.)
As mentioned above, the recipe serves two adults and a toddler. If you are making the soup only for your baby, scale down the quantity of ingredients.
Use only 1 clove of garlic.
Depending on your baby's age, omit or use less of clove, ginger, and pepper powder. (Use juice of ginger instead of grated ginger.)
Cook red lentils separately and mash them properly. Cook the rest of the soup as per the steplist above and then add the cooked lentils when the soup is almost done.
Serve the soup without the bread.
