Really good soup, and the timing in the recipe is perfect. The vegetables were tender but not mushy or overcooked and the lentils were cooked perfectly as well. I did not use the shanks as directed since I had leftover ham I needed to use up so I used chicken broth and part water instead. I have no doubt the ham shanks and ham broth would be even more flavorful. I will try that next time!
