Here’s a wonderfully homey, comfort soup from Kim
Lentil Soup
Recipe By :My Mom
1 Cup Lentils
4 1/2 Cups Chicken broth/stock (I use the fat free stuff)
2 1/2 sprigs parsley — snipped
1 bay leaf
12 ounces tomato — crushed (I use canned)
2 stalks celery — chopped
2 sticks carrot — sliced
1 onion — chopped
2 cloves garlic – minced
1 teaspoon thyme (dried)
1. cook until vegetables are tender, 1 1/2 – 2 hours
Seriously, that’s how my mother gave it to me. But basically, she just throws it all into a pot, brings to a boil and then lets it cook.
We really enjoyed this soup on a nasty, cold night.
I like how you can see the steam coming up, in the photo.
Thanks, Kim.

  1. You are not going to believe this, Jan…but I am making this lentil soup right now. Anthony doesn’t know a thing about it and he will not believe it either when he gets home.
