The Perfect Time of the Year...

to have some soup and one of my top 10 is a lentil soup. Here's the quick recipe -

Heat A Large Soup Pot & Add 1-2 Tbs of Olive Oil to Heat
Add 1 Large Chopped Onion
Generously Salt & Pepper, Cooking Onions Until Soft, About 8-10 Minutes
Add 4 Cloves of Finely Chopped Garlic
1 Round Teaspoon of Ground Cumin
1 Sprig of Fresh Thyme (1/2 - 3/4 Teaspoon Dried)

1 Large Bay Leaf (OK I Add 2 )
8 oz Lentil ( I Mix It Up..)
Stir & Coat All With Oil
Pour 3 - 1/2 Cups of Warm Chicken or Veggie Stock
3 Cups Warm Water
Stir, Cover & Simmer, Stirring Occassionally 
Cook Until Lentils Are Soft & Falling Apart, About 30-35 Minutes
Remove Bay Leaf & Thyme Sprig 
Puree or Mash 2 Cups of Mixture
Return Mixture to Pot
Mix and Serve Hot
