I served the soup with cornbread. It was delicious. I loved all the vegetables. They really added a lot of color and texture to the soup. I was concerned that there would be too much onion in the soup, but it turned out perfect.

This soup was delicious and nutricious. Normally, lentils are not one of my favorite legumes, but in this recipe they are delicious and not over-bearing.
