    1 1/2   c            Lentils (regular, not red)
    7       c            Water
    1       md           Yellow onion, chopped
    3                    To 5 cloves garlic, minced
                         Or pressed
    1       tb           Olive oil
    1       t            Salt
            x            Freshly ground black pepper
            x            Juice of one lemon
   Bring the lentils and water to a boil in a large soup
   pot, then reduce heat and simmer.  When the lentils
   have cooked for about 40 minutes, saute the onion and
   garlic in the olive oil until the onion is soft, then
   add the mixture to the lentils, along with the salt
   and plenty of black pepper. Simmer for another 30
   minutes or so.  Just before serving, add about half
   the lemon juice, then taste to see whether you want to
   add the rest. Add more salt and/or pepper if you like.
   This is a very simple and soothing soup.
