This is a very yummy lentil soup with a Mediterranean flair. I learned it from a girlfriend of mine. It is very easy to make. You can double and triple the recipe without any trouble and it freezes well if you want to use it for a freezer dinner. Most of all, it is just so tasty. It feels like comfort food, but isn't as fattening and has a lot more flavor.

Really tasty! I thought I had lentils at home but was mistaken and used yellow split peas, adjusting for cooking time.

Nice flavors. My lentils took more time to cook, but it was worth the wait. Also freezes well.
