    KPD's Note:

    Yummy soup yet so easy to throw together! Cook time is a guess since I live at high altitude and it takes forever for the lentils to break down. We really enjoyed this, even my 2 yr. old DD loved it! Enjoy!

    1. 1
      Melt butter in soup pot over medium heat. Add onions and celery; cook until onions are translucent, about 4-6 minutes.
    2. 2
      Add bay leaf, cumin and garlic, cook 1-2 minutes until fragrant. Add lentils and coat evenly with butter, cook 4-5 minutes, stirring frequently.
    3. 3
      Add 6 cups broth. Bring to simmer and stir often so lentils don't scorch. Cook soup until lentils begin to dissolve and begin to look like a pureed soup. Add additional broth as needed to adjust consistency.
    4. 4
      Season to taste with fresh squeezed lime juice, salt and pepper. Stir in cilantro or parsley. Serve!
