Lentil soup
My family used to eat at a Greek restaurant often and some of us really enjoyed their lentil soup, my mother then managed to replicate it rather accurately, It is a vegetarian soup that would go great with some pita bread and a sandwich.
 
  
==Ingredients==
 
*2 cups brown lentils
 
*1 large potato
 
*2 carrots (or halved baby carrots)
 
*1 onion
 
*1/4 cups fresh parsley
 
*2 tbsp Vinigar or lemon juice
 
*Ground Pepper and Salt

==Procedure==
 
*Slice the onion into large chunks.
 
*Saute onion chunks in a small amount of olive oil in a large pot (or if you prefer the low edges use a skillet)
