    Cooking Beast's Note:

    An ingeniously simple but refined version of an old classic dish. You may use ham butt or salt pork or cubed ham instead of the ham hocks, but be careful to avoid too much salt. Serve with a hearty bread or corn bread. Adapted from "A Celebration of Soups" by Robert Ackart (1982).

      Simmer the soup for one hour, covered, or until the lentils are tender. Discard the bouquet garni.
