Directions

Clean and sort through lentils, rinse then add to stock pot with 5 cups of water and bring to slow simmer.
Clean and slice celery and carrots and add to soup pot.
Add one cup diced ham (I used leftovers)
Add one can diced tomatoes.
While simmering, chop half a medium onion and chop up 3 or more cloves of garlic according to your taste. Saute in 1 teaspoon of olive oil until transparent.
Add to soup and simmer until vegetables are tender.
Add salt to taste, cumin - to taste (I find I don't like to eat lentils with cumin) and as you serve it sprinkle a tablespoon of fresh chopped cilantro.

Makes about 8 servings 1 1/2 cups each.
