At first glance, this seems like an easy soup, and it is, but once you serve it up with a nice dollop of rich goat cheese, the experience is stepped up a few notches. The cheese fills out the lentils and basic seasonings and adds a delightful velvety texture and earthiness to the bowl. This is one soup that I won't soon forget. When I just want a fairly straightforward dinner, lentils often appear. It's an ideal mid-week meal with much flair despite the somewhat humble base.
