      What a delight and so easy! The only things I left out were bay leaves and sherry, neither of which I had in my pantry. I did put in some shredded chicken. which was a nice addition, My son is studying in Spain right now, and he told me they often put very tender pork in the lentil soup at his college dining hall. We just came back from visiting him, and I've been inspired with trying my hand at a new cuisine. This recipe is a nice change from plain old lentil soup!
