Or, as I now think of it, the "You're gonna need a bigger pot" soup recipe.

This recipe makes a lot of soup. I ate a substantial bowl a day for about a week, plus gave away at least four generous servings and still had more soup. Paired with some good sourdough bread and some sort of desert, it makes for a very filling meal.

Everyone who ate it went out of their way to comment on how tasty it was--and not in that I'm being nice to the person who gave me food way, more in the "Wow, that was really so frakkin' good for vegetable soup that I'm kind of baffled by how much I liked it" way. Normally, I get bored with the taste of something after about four servings, but I wasn't ever sad to open my pyrex and find this waiting for me.

So, just fair warning, you're going to need a bigger pot than you think. It came up so close to the very lip of my 10 quart pot that when the last ingredients went in, I had trouble stirring it without spilling.

It should be noted that the soup itself could easily be made vegan/vegetarian by using vegetable stock.

Lastly, it really is more stew than soup. The lentils make for a very thick and hearty meal overall. I made it with green beans instead of spinach, but next time I make it, I think (assuming I can find a bigger pot to use), I might toss both in.
