I went to Central Market (an upscale grocery store/eatery in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area), and I tasted a fabulous Vegetarian Lentil Soup. I added a squirt of lemon and then it was phenomenal. I slowly ate it to really take in all the different flavors, so I could mimic it at home. I think I did a pretty good job. The family says it's the best lentil soup I've ever made.
