This is my new favorite lentil soup. Good right away but GREAT the next day. Worth seekin out small french lentils. They hold their shape and have a nutty flavor. This soup comes together more quickly than the recipe indicates.

  2. Add the garlic and stir for about 1 minute.
  3. Add the lentils and stir to coat with the oil and bacon fat.
  4. Add the tomatoes, vegetable broth, thyme and bay leaves and bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes or until lentils are cooked. Add more broth if soup is getting too thick.
