“Incredibly flavorful and filling, my whole family LOVED it, and none of us thought we would like lentils! For the vinegar, we used red wine vinegar. If desired, add spicy smoked sausage or left-over ham to this soup. We cut up some cocktail smoked sausages and added it to the soup, which was a nice and spicy bonus. For the 1 1/2 cups of chopped tomatoes, you'll need 2 medium tomatoes, or just use a can of chopped tomatoes like I did.”
