This hearty vegetable lentil soup is perked up by onion, garlic, black pepper and bay leaves; can be made vegetarian by using vegetable broth in place of the beef broth. Makes a good and satisfying autumn meal. I sometimes add a tossed salad and warm crusty bread, to round out the meal. Good with a glass of cider, too. Enjoy! From my mother's recipe files.
