    DDW's Note:

    We had this recipe made for us several years back when my twins were babies. We love it and eat it often, especially during the winter. Leftovers have even more flavor and it freezes well. I've made this with dried herbs or fresh. A lot of people turn their nose up at the sound of Lentil soup and they have been converted with this one!

      This soup was home-y and delish. I didn't have any parsley on hand, but we didn't miss it one bit. I used a smoked ham hock, added more garlic and didn't put in the spinach. Definitely a keeper.

      This is a great soup. I love lentil soup and my childhood neighbor from Greece used to make the best. This is the next best thing. Next time I will add some chopped frozen spinach, (1/2 a box) like she used to do. Thanks so much!

      I've made and froze this many times. It's a family favorite. I use dried parsley, about 2 T. I've successfully used ham bones, ham hocks and smoked turkey wings for the meat. Thank you for sharing!
