This is a very easy, hearty soup that's especially delicious during cold weather. I make it for the neighbors and they love it the basic plit pea recipe with the twist of the lentils being added! This recipes and lots of others featuring legumes can be found at .

I made a lot of changes so I'm not awarding stars, but I did want you to have credit for a good meal! I used vegetable broth instead of water, and no ham. Instead of ham I added, towards the end of cook time, leftover taco meat and some cooked bacon. This gave it a nice smokey taste. I left off the celery completely. I felt like the broth was necessary and would be a little leary to try it with just water. That said, the way I made it was delicious and we not only enjoyed our dinner but had lunches for days. Thanks for the idea!
