DIRECTIONS

  • In a large pot, saute the onion and garlic.
  • Add tomatoes and carrots.
  • Add lentils and herbs. (Thyme works great alone too). Make sure you have small green lentils: sometimes the other types can get mealy.
  • Add vegetable broth about 1 inch above lentils.
  • Bring to a boil, then let simmer, stirring once in a while.
  • When the lentils are soft and soup thick, you are done.
  • Add salt/pepper or more herbs to taste.
  • A splash of vinegar in your bowl on top of the soup is delicious! (French recipe suggested it, and it was great).
