    butter or margarine, 2 Tbsp
    chopped onion, 2 cups

Cook lentils in water and salt about 30-40 minutes till tender and water has become thick.
Meanwhile, heat butter in large pot. Add onion and carrot, and saute till soft. Add to this mixture the tomatoes and remaining ingredients, and let simmer for about 30 minutes. Stir occasionally. When this is done, add cooked lentils and water to this, cooking about 5 more minutes.
If you want a non vegetarian version, cooked sliced sausage added to this makes a nice addition. Makes about 8 1 cup servings.

    I really enjoyed this soup, the texture was very nice. I added more black pepper to give it a bit of extra kick. - 2/26/09
