    Here it is, Bro. I just saw another one on BBC food that used garlic, turmeric and cumin. That sounded good. And pancetta instead of regular bacon. :wub: You could add whatever spices you like really.
    But this is the one I made. Very good.:

    French Lentil and Vegetable Soup with Bacon
    Servings: 6

    • 3 slices bacon, finely chopped
    • 1 tablespoon olive oil
    • 1 large yellow onion, finely chopped
    • 1 stalk celery, finely chopped
    • 2 medium carrots, diced
    • 3 cloves garlic, minced
    • 1 14.5 oz can diced tomatoes
    • 6 cups chicken broth, best quality such as Swanson
    • 1 cup French lentils (lentilles du Puy), or common brown or green lentils
    • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    • 2 bay leaves
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
    • A few tablespoons chopped fresh parsley, for garnish (optional)
    1. Fry the bacon in a large pot over medium heat, stirring frequently, until the fat is rendered and the bacon is crisp, 4-5 minutes. Add the olive oil, onions and celery and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the carrots and garlic, stirring constantly, and cook 1 minute more. Add the diced tomatoes (with their juices), chicken broth, lentils, thyme, bay leaves, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover partially, reduce heat to low and simmer until the lentils are tender, 45-50 minutes (less for common lentils). Fish out bay leaves and discard.
    2. Use an immersion blender to purée the soup until the broth is slightly thickened, or to desired consistency. (Do not purée too much or the soup will get too thick, and you'll lose the integrity of the lentils.) If you don't have an immersion blender, transfer about 2 cups of the soup to a blender and purée until smooth, then return the blended soup to the pot. Garnish with fresh chopped parsley if desired and serve. (Note: The soup may thicken as it sits; thin with a bit of water if necessary.)

    It's basically the same as the soup just with less broth.
