This is a nice hearty warming fun flavorful fiber filled soup. It's adapted from a recipe I found in a Coca Cola cookbook. I'm sure you could play with it even more than I did adding garlic, carrots etc. It can also be made with a ham or beef bone omitting the bouillon cubes. It didn't specify the type of lentils but looking at the cooking time I surmised it was a whole type. I used whole red lentils (Masoor) which turned out perfect! I also added in some cooked crumbled bacon per my husband's request and it was great in it.
