simple lentil soup
 
I've Googled and I'm not the only one looking for this but apparently no one has been successful: Does anyone have a clone recipe for Progresso lentil soup? DD loves it and I have lentils, veggie broth, tomato paste, celery, spinach, etc. on hand. But I'd rather not wing it unless I have to. :p

I make lentil soup a lot, haven't had much of the canned stuff but I tell you what my basic recipe is. (sorry, I don't measure anything!)

Cook onion, celery and chopped carrots in a small amount of oil until they soften a little then add a couple of cloves of garlic and cook a few seconds more. Add rinsed lentils and cover with broth/water. Bring to a boil and then cook on low until the lentils are done, about 30 minutes. Add spinach, salt and pepper and any other spices (I like a little cumin) and cook a few more minutes until the spinach is wilted.

Sometimes I add a can of tomatoes before the lentils. A squeeze of lemon into your bowl of soup is really good too.

ETA: I forgot I usually add a bay leaf as well.

Well, I have a can on the counter and the Joy of Cooking open to the lentil soup recipe, so if my experimenting is a success, I'll post it here later this week. :)
