    Hi there friend. I appreciate this Lentil Soup Recipe. I always wanted to make it but never got around to doing so. But this winter is a good time for hot soup.

    This is a similar recipe to one my mother often made. I remember my mother using a ham hock and it was the best!!! Thank you for sharing it as my mother's recipes disappeared after she passed away.

    I like this one a lot too. It's been a while since I've had lentil soup.

    It is really good. I asked Mom years ago about the recipe and she couldn't remember where it was. Unbelievably, I found it 2 days ago in my recipe folder, paper brown around the edges so I had it for years!!!!!!!!

    This sounds really good. When I first noticed the title, I realized that I've never made a lentil soup before. Sounds very yummy and I'll have to try it.
