Ham and Lentil Soup. 5 stars. Added more brothe, lentils, and spinach. Fresh thyme was amazing. Bought a smoked Ham shank. Cubed it all, freezing half for later soup. I love pigs, but it's wonderful for providing energy and comfort. Baked w/ Cornbread. Will make a double batch and freeze for future!

Lentil Soup with Ham ~ Uses chicken broth instead of water. Sautéing the lentils with the vegetables allows them to cook evenly & prevents the lentils from blowing out & turning to mush, plus browning them first in oil enhances their flavor.
