Once upon a time I was standing in the soup section at the grocery store pondering the multitudes of soup cans. An older man came up and said he was looking for Lentil Soup. I was intrigued because I had never heard of a lentil before. He found the can he was looking for and I asked him if it was good? Kind of a stupid question, yes. He said it was the BEST! I went ahead and picked up one of the same cans he just walked away with.
I was excited when I got it home and opened it up right away. It looked good. I imagined a lentil was more of an onion but it seems to be a bean. After warming it up and tasting it, I promptly threw it down the garbage disposal.
I looked up Lentil Soup on the internet and found all sorts of pages with recipes and testimonials about how good it is. I’m not sure I understand what the story is here. How can people like such a vile soup?
