lentil soup actualized

I got the idea for this lentil soup from the lentil patties I made.

onion
4 cloves garlic
bay leaf
2 cups lentils
2 potatoes
2 carrots
salt

Saute the chopped onion in olive oil until slightly browned. (I was out of olive oil so I used Earth Balance.) Add the garlic and saute another minute.

Add the washed, sorted lentils. Add water to cover them and then some. Add the bay leaf. Bring to a boil then simmer, covered, for 10 minutes.

Add the chopped potatoes and carrots. Simmer, covered, for another 15 minutes. Add about half a teaspoon of salt. Simmer another five minutes. Taste and make sure everything’s soft and delicious. Serve.

This is about the simplest lentil soup but feels so wholesome and nutritious and good. If you’re in the mood for something fancy, do not make this soup.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
