"I originally called this my 'experimental lentil' soup, patching together various other lentil soup recipes. I've been making it every fall for a decade now. What's listed here is a single recipe, though I can't remember the last time I've made such a small batch. It's great for freezing in individual servings for lunches."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

2 2/3 tablespoons
chicken bouillon granules
ham bone with some meat
green bell pepper, chopped
crushed bay leaf
This is better than any other lentil recipe I've tried. I love the addition of the green bell pepper, and added some red in, too. I let it simmer all day and there was just a ton of flavor. Thanks for posting it!
I made a smaller portion just for my husband I sautéed onions and carrots in Bacon Fat then deglazed the pan with white wine then followed the rest of the recipe
Had no split peas, but had lentils so I tried this one. Really yummy.
I didn't have any marjoram, but even without it, this soup was a huge hit in my house. I would love to try it with the marjoram, but don't worry if you don't have it, it will still taste fine; it is flavourful without being heavy. I happened to have chicken broth on hand, so I used that instead of using bouillon. Next time I make it, I think I will roast my vegetables first simply because I love the extra flavour that roasting provides. I may have to start cooking more ham on the bone just so I can make this soup.
This was really good. My Husband and 3 year old daughter ate it up! I served it with toasted pretzel bread and it was delish!
Love this recipe! I did add a few extra things to it that worked out really well...a can of diced fire roasted tomatoes, 1 Tbs of sugar to cut the acidity, a few cups of chopped kale, some fresh diced garlic and lemon pepper for some zing. I Will definitely make this recipe again!
This soup is delicious!!! I loved that it was so quick and easy to make. I didn't have any marjoram but it was delicious nonetheless. My husband raved about it! This will definitely become a favorite winter dish!!
Great, easy,and quick. Next time I would boil the ham bone a while before adding my lentils so I don't have to spend as much time de-boning. I also sautéed my veggies in a little olive oil before adding. Thanks for sharing.
