Default Mama's Healthy Lentil Soup

Mama's Healthy Lentil Soup

1 bag of dried lentils (1 lb)
1 large onion
2 to 3 fresh carrots (preferably the ones with the
green tops attached)
2 ripe tomatoes
3 stalks of celery
1 small can of tomato sauce or, if you wish, tomato
1 bay leaf
1/2 tsp. of fresh oregano
3 or 4 springs of fresh parsley
1 bunch of fresh spinach
Pepper and salt
3 to 4 tbs of olive oil

Wash the dried lentils well and drain in a colander. In
a large pot add about 2 Tbs. of olive oil add chopped
onion, celery, chopped tomato and chopped carrots.
Simmer on very low heat for about 5 minutes, then add
lentils, tomato sauce and enough water to cover lentils
but top it off with about 2 inches of extra water.

Add seasonings and simmer for about 1 hour or until
lentils are very tender. Add washed spinach and cook
for another ten minutes. Stir in another 2 Tbs. of
olive oil. Serve this soup with brown rice, or Italian
pasta called shells or tubettis. You can also eat the
soup with French bread. Garnish with grated Parmesan,
Mozzarella, or French Roquefort cheese. With a salad,
this soup makes a meal.
