Lentil Soup with Spinach and Vinegar

Introduction

Filling soup with lentils, sauteed onions, carrots, celery and garlic with Italian seasoning. Adding chopped spinach and vinegar at the end is the key. A hearty vegetarian entree if you substitue vegetable broth for the chicken broth. Really good the 2nd day!

    Excellent!, and nicely balanced flavor. This was similar to my own recipe, so of course I liked it. I scaled it down for us, and used fresh spinach and a little dried mint. I often vary the spices when I make it. - 10/11/10
