I added about 1 cup of leftover cooked polenta to this soup so it wouldn’t go to waste, which thickened it up quite a bit.
You could also and 1-2 cups of diced tomatoes along with the lentils and broth, for more color and flavor if you wanted.
Be sure to pick over your lentils and remove any stones. Every time I’m tempted to skip this step, I think back to a cooking class I took where the instructor explained she once found a small piece of metal in the lentils she was preparing for a catering event!
