In a large stove top pot, add olive oil and sauté onions, celery, and carrots until slightly tender (5 minutes).
Stir in garlic, cumin, turmeric, celery salt, and kosher salt.
Add in lentils, chicken broth, lemon juice, bay leaves, and cilantro.
Taste and season with extra lemon, salt, and pepper as needed.
Let simmer for 30 minutes or so, until the veggies are tender.
Remove bay leaves and serve with toasted pita chips, fresh cilantro, and pickled turnip shavings. FYI, this soup is extra tasty with all these little toppings, but still delicious without!
