    Bergy's Note:

    Wonderful, satisfying soup. This is a whole meal in itself. Great for lunch or dinner. Do ahead and reheat. The aroma from the garlic and cilantro fills the house and makes you want to dig right in.

      Just like my mom used to make, minus the cilantro. I have made it with and without the cilantro and I like it both ways. Thank you for posting it, Bergy.

      Mom always made lentil soup with a ham bone. This was a delicious change. Served it with a nice crusty black bread. Thanks for sharing.
