Lentil Soup (a Crudo)

About this recipe

Bert from Sesame Street loves lentil soup. It may be because dried lentils are easier to prepare than dried beans since they don’t need to soak overnight. Whatever the reason, get on board and try this soup (Bert’s a smart guy, you know).


In a nice big soup pot, boil:

Then drain, rinse, and put back into the same pot covered by 3-4 inches of fresh water.

Turn heat to high and add:

Cover, bring to a boil, and simmer for approx. 40 minutes. Add water if necessary (remember, we’re making soup).

Serve with Parmesan cheese and additional black pepper to taste.
