Lentil or Pea Soup - I have only ever used lentils.

500g lentils (green or brown) or split peas - wash and sort
8 cups water
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped onion
1 ½ cups chopped carrots
¼ tsp dried thyme
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf

Put all ingredients in a large pot and bring to the boil. Reduce heat and simmer covered for 40 minutes until lentils or peas are tender.

Puree the soup with a stick blender until it reaches the consistency you like (either smooth or lumpy isOK). Add pepper and salt to taste. Reheat to boiling point. Can be served with sour cream.

I got it from the internet and like it because it's so straightforward. It is probably *not* the most attractive soup you will ever make.
