This amazing soup is ready in about an hour. Watch the video, then get the recipe for Chef John's Black Lentil Soup. Drizzle a little extra-virgin olive oil over the top and dig in! And if you want, do the full-bling thing by adding a dollop of sour cream, some chopped avocado, and an extra pinch of cayenne. See more Chef John videos >>
