2-Ingredient Lentil Soup

Here's another "real food" soup that only has two ingredients (not counting water), but packs LOTS of flavor.

I used some ham stock that I had previously cooked and canned, but you could start from scratch with a meaty ham bone or some ham hocks, along with some water, to make your stock.   If you do that, you'll also have bits of ham to add to your soup.

If the ham was flavorful, the stock will be, too, and you may not even have to add additional seasoning.

Real Food Lentil Soup

2-Ingredient Lentil Soup

2 cups ham stock, preferably homemade
1 cup water
1 cup brown lentils, rinsed

Combine all in a medium pot.  Heat to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to a simmer or slow boil.

Cook for 1 hour or until lentils are tender.

If desired, mash lentils lightly to thicken soup, then serve.

Makes 4 side dish servings, or 2 generous main dish servings.
