    I worded it for myself, I bet, I hope I didn't mess it up!
    I love it.

    Chris Dabney's Lentil Soup

    1 1/2 cups lentils

    1 pound tomatoes, canned
    1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
    1 bay leaf
    1 clove garlic, chopped
    1 stalk celery, sliced
    1 large carrot, sliced

    After bacon is fried, cook onions, garlic, celery, and carrot
    until transparent. Combine lentils and vegetable mixture in pot
    with stock and spices. Cook until lentils are tender. Add tomatoes
    and bacon. Heat and serve. Serves 6.

    I hope you like it. I have added spinach to it, too. I'll
    be making some this week, for sure.

    We tried a lentil soup from Dorie Greenspan's French cookbook last
    night. Along with the usual celery, onion, and carrot, this soup got
    its flavor from fresh ginger, coriander seed, and clove. The SO often
    gives the hairy eyeball to legume soups, but he enjoyed this one.

    Are they brown, green, or red (orange) lentils?

    WHAT ??!!

    [The irate SO responds]

    I like legume soups. I don't recall complaints (from you or me) when
    I've made several versions of black bean soup, navy bean soups, pea
    soups, baked beans, moros y cristianos, read beans and rice, Chinese
    black bean sauces, etc., etc.

    Look up some recipes for "dal". It's a staple in India. With centuries
    of practice, they have learned to do amazing things with simple
    ingredients and complex mixes of spices. One of the first cookbooks I
    bought (yikes, almost 40 years ago) was the original version of
    "Vegetarian Epicure". When I made dal from this book, it was the first
    time I had tried the Indian technique of frying a whole bunch of spices
    in clarified butter before mixing in other ingredients. The aroma was
    wonderful, the end result was delicious, and it was cheap enough to
    become a standard item in my college student budget.

    Some westernized dal recipes call for yellow split peas, but I think
    that lentils can work as well.

    All this talk about lentils got me to buy some. Maybe I'll make
    mujadara.

    Chickpeas are also a dal -- channa dal. So that falafel switched one
    dal for another.

    Naturally I like your web-site, however you need to test the spelling on
    several of your posts. Many of them are rife with spelling issues and I
    find it very silly to inform you. On the other hand I will certainly
    come back again!
