    (Spark I know you prefer that we not post any recipe's that are not 'out there', in this day and age I'm not sure that's possible.)

    I used tomato paste instead of sauce, added the butter, used dried chili pepper flakes instead of the whole chili pepper, and added the diced tomato (one can). I easily get 9 to 10 one cup servings from this recipe.

    Next batch I plan on adding some zucchini, maybe some red potatoes chopped, and a bunch of fresh tomatoes from the garden.

Directions

I haven't timed the actual prep or cook time since last time I made it I was trying to keep busy as not to fall apart at the seams. I had just lost my Grandpa that afternoon . The cooking instructions I cut and pasted from the site where I found this recipe which is

She has a lovely picture of the soup posted.

1. Heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, carrot, celery, and garlic; cook 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender, stirring frequently. Add water, dried lentils, bay leaves, and chile. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes or until lentils are tender.

2. Stir in tomato sauce, vinegar, salt, and black pepper; discard bay leaves and chile.
