This traditional Cuban Lentil soup is thick and hearty. It can be served alone or with rice.
In a Med/Large Pot combine water and Lentils. Boil for 1 minute the reduce heat to low; simmer 15 minutes.
Add all remaining ingredients except Sazon and wine. Bring to a boil for 1 minute. Reduce heat to a simmer for 45 minutes.
Remove Bay leaf, Basil leaves, and Ham shank. Remove the meat from the shank and shred. Place ham shank meat back into pot. Add wine. Add Sazon if needed. Stir and cook for 5 more minutes.
You can find the recipe for Sazon on my page.
(HINT: If you can not find a ham shank you can use some bacon and some cooking ham chopped or diced. You can also add carrots if you like. You can also just add salt and pepper if you like. The longer you let the soup rest and removed from heat the thinker it will become.)
Serve Over white rice or enjoy alone.
