Vegetarian Savory Lentil Soup

I have been making this soup for years. It originally came from the New McDougall Cookbook - wonderful low-fat, vegetarian cookbook. I don't know if it is still in publication. I didn't see another one that looked quite like this recipe in the many lentil soup recipes.
