Lentil Soup III

"As a busy college student, I don't have much time to eat, let alone cook. I've been making this soup for myself my whole college career, since it's a soup my mom made when I was growing up. This soup is illegally easy and incredibly good for you. Eat it up! You can add sliced, shredded, or diced cooked chicken to the soup when it is almost ready. This soup is delicious, but it can be a surprisingly dull color. You can make it more attractive by serving it with a thin slice of lemon on top and a sprinkle of chopped parsley or chives."

Instead of the tomato paste, I made it with a cup of spaghetti sauce and added chopped celery, and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt. My husband loved it, so did I!! Easy and delicious.

Lentil is the easiest bean soup to make and this is one I will continue to make! I sauteed some bacon and removed leaving the grease to saute the onion, carrot(added) and garlic. I added the r...

very yummy and ridiculously easy! I added the whole little can of tomato paste, so I don't know if that's a 1/4 cup. I also simmered it down to a stew-like consistency (about an hour more on way...
