"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

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!
Had no split peas, but had lentils so I tried this one. Really yummy.
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!
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.
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
