To Your Very Good Health Rich Lentil Soup

Recipe by Susiecat too

The soup is richly fragrant and nutritious, perfect as a complete meal. You can serve this over rice if desired. I made this tonight to try to coax my 3-yr old to eat something, after having his tonsils out a few days ago, and he ate about half a bowl, which at this point is a triumph! To your very good health!

This was very good! I made a half recipe, and added a bit more carrot and celery (personal preference), as well as using a can of tomatoes with green chilis to give it some kick. I did add some salt at the end, as I used homemake chicken stock without salt, and it was a great lunch on a brisk afternoon. Thanks!
