Broccoli and Mushrooms Lentil Soup with Herb Mayonnaise and Brown Rice

There are a few secrets to making supertasty lentil soup.

  1. French green lentils (lentilles du puy). Unless you are making a creamy dal, these fancy french lentils both taste and hold their shape better than brown lentils.
  2. Go easy on the lentils. Too many lentils make for a stodgy soup.
  3. Add something acidic. Tomatoes and lemon are both particularly good in lentil soup.
  4. Spice it up with fresh herb sauce. A garnish of chimichurri, pesto, or herb mayonnaise makes a simple soup a fancy affair.
