    Sharon123's Note:

    Adapted from Alton Brown's Good Eats, this is wonderful soup! I have tweaked it a little, after reading all the reviews. Enjoy! To make the soup more of a main meal, add soy chorizo to it!

      Using an immersion blender, puree to your preferred consistency(or put in batches into the blender and puree). Serve immediately. Enjoy!

      This is a very good lentil soup. I skipped the "sausage" and used veggie broth. The highlight and difference of this version is the spices (I was too lazy to toast the cumin). Out of personal choice I chose not to blend it. I really like the "chunky style" best. It has a wonderful depth of flavor. I had a bowl for lunch and froze the rest to hide for later rest.
