Serving Ideas : Serve with crusty bread for a hearty supper or lunch.

NOTES : I used slightly more than 1 cup of lentils, mixing brown and green types. You can also vary the vegetables used. I increased the amount of celery, and added a parsnip. I also sweat the veggies in a small amount of oil before adding the lentils and broth.
This soup freezes very well, so I usually have a container ready for quick supper.

Every good dish deserves a good pot.
