Made a lentil soup last night. Made enough for 3 nights actually. My soup making tends toward the heroic. Son actually put his in a sandwich which he picked up and ate without difficulty.

Now THAT'S thick soup!! I LOVE lentil and/or pea soup, which is CRAZY, because i HATED it as a kid!! My Mom's pea soup was bland. Whenever I was invited to stay over my best friend's house for supper, it invariably was the night they had lentil soup!! Do you add any veggies to yours? My Mom never did, but following Hubby's lead, I put fimely chopped onion and carrot.

I usually start soup with fried onions. Essentially, if it is not a dessert, I include fried onions. This time I happened to be out of onions. Soup contained dried lentils, corned beef hash,that I needed to use up, and spices. (Allspice, salt and pepper.) I put it in the crock pot with water. When the lentils were soft I whirled it all up with my stalk mixer. It seemed a little thin so I added some butter and flour, whirled it some more. That is all.

Great minds must think alike-just defrosted some lentil soup for lunch today. 😊

I approve of heroic soup. My granny used to refer to soup this thick as "soup you can dance on" :)

Heroic means thick soup here?
Your soup sounds really nice, I'm sure I'd love it! :D

Yes, heroic is a silly way of saying thick soup. Maybe some day we can visit again, you could come to New york?

we have trouble with quantities, when catering for five goes down to catering for 2. Even half is too much and you can't really, for example, half an onion!

That, I think, is where the freezer becomes a friend. This is probably more soup than anyone will eat efficiently. But someone may be happy to find a freezer container, in a hungry moment months from now.
