“From the cookbook Cooking on a Budget. Use whichever lentils you have - we like it with red lentils, but it's very nice with green or brown lentils (or a combination). I occasionally will add a couple of rashers of diced bacon if I've got bacon on hand, but without the bacon it's a great vegetarian/vegan soup. This also freezes very well.”
