Lentil Soup Recipe

My winter blues have kicked in hard. Still, one of the things that I absolutely do love about winter is soup. I just can’t get enough. Last week I made my second batch of lentil soup of the season.

I love cooking with lentils in the winter. They are so easy, delicious & hardy. This lentil soup was a cinch to make and we ate the whole pot within a couple days — always a sign of a successful recipe.

Ingredients:
16-ouce bag of lentils
handful of baby carrots chopped
bell pepper diced
medium onion diced
five slices of bacon, cooked and cut into slices
salt & pepper to taste
a pinch of fennel seeds, chopped
3-4 bay leaves

Directions:
Put all of your ingredients in a large pot. Cover with water, adding an extra inch or two of water over ingredients. Turn stove on high heat. Bring pot to a boil. Lower heat and simmer with a tilted cover for an hour and a half. Check in occasionally to stir and to see if you need to add water — ingredients should always be completely submerged.

Sit back, enjoy the delicious smell floating through your house. When time’s up, serve it hot!
