DIRECTIONS

  • Make the bouquet garni by placing the herbs in a cheesecloth or a metal tea ball. Place in large stock pot.
  • Add all ingredients in stock pot--water, vegetables, lentils.
  • Simmer the soup for one hour, covered, or until the lentils are tender. Discard the bouquet garni.
  • Remove the ham hocks. Cut the meat from them. Reserve. Discard bones.
  • Optional: in the container of a food processor or large blender, whirl half of the soup until it is smooth, 2 cups at a time. Return to pot with other half of soup. Add meat. Taste and adjust salt and pepper, if necessary. Serve.
