I never cared for lentils, until I found this recipe 20+ years ago. This is the only way I like them. Hope you do too.

This soup was very easy to make, and definately a good blend of flavors. I am looking for a way to jazz it up a little, since it is a bit bland for me. I may add some chillies, or maybe a little hot sauce. I served it up with Ciabatta Bread from Tish. I'll be making this again, thanks!
