A warm, hearty, and healthy soup ready in a little over an hour. I use low-sodium broth and turkey ham.
- In a large pot, combine all ingredients except dijon mustard.
- Heat to a boil over medium-high heat.
- Reduce heat; simmer uncovered for 1 hour.
- Stir in mustard and serve hot.
The dijon mustard really makes this dish unique, and really compliments the ham and lentil flavors without being overbearing. I made this recipe with leftover honey-glazed ham and it blended wonderfully with the rest of the ingredients. I also substituted celery for the green pepper, which worked great. It tasted fantastic with hot cornbread on the side...there were no leftovers!
Unique, different and delicious. I forgot to add the mustard before taking the pix and was about 1/3 of the way through my bowl before I remembered. Don't forget! lol, it really puts this soup over the top. I don't really know how much I added to mine but it wasn't over 1/2 a tsp. It added a base note that was the finishing touch. Really good and my single suggestion would be to add more liquid as there isn't a lot when it's cooked. Made for Photo Tag.
