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.
Way better the next day.
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.
Healthy, frugal, and satisfying, though I thought it would have more flavor. Other lentil soup recipes often call for cooking the onions, garlic (and celery or carrots if using those) along with the lentils. Maybe that would allow their flavors to permeate the dish more.
