  3. When potatoes are cooked, remove into a mixing bowl; mash and set aside.
  4. Add carrots, onion, celery, and chicken soup base to pot and simmer, covered, for about 30 minutes or until lentils are soft.
  5. Add cloves, salt, and pepper and simmer for another 15 minutes.
  6. Now add mashed potatoes, mix well and just bring to boil. Adjust seasonings to taste. Remove and discard cloves before serving.
