Each to their own...
Back on topic...
Cook lentils as per normal...which will prob mean soaking over night or boiling for 1 or 2 hours etc, etc. Just do that in plain water.
Then when your lentils are cooked you can start building your soup. There are three rules to follow...
1...If it tastes good, do it.
2...Corn flour is used to thicken soup
3...Wheat flour is used to thicken sauces and gravies.
That is it...and when all else fails refer back to rule 1.
Try getting some bacon bones. Simmer them in some of your veal stock. then (without removing the bacon bones) add your lentils. Then you have pea and ham soup!!
Of course add other things as you like...like garlic, onion, chilli etc, etc.
But no matter what you do...You MUST always follow rule number 1...
If it tastes good, do it!
