I love lenitl and spinach soup. You can skip the lemon (pricey sometimes) or use Real Lemon and skip the zest. I have used other veggies too.

Lentil Spinach Soup Recipe

2 med. onions
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
2 T. vegetable or olive oil
3 cups water
1 tsp. salt
8 ounces dried lentils (about 1 1/4 cups)
1 tsp. grated lemon peel
2 tsp. lemon juice
10 oz. spinach, chopped (about 4 cups) [or] 1 10 oz. pkg. frozen chopped spinach, thawed

Cook and stir onions and garlic in oil in 3 qt. saucepan over med. heat until onions are tender. Stir in water, salt and lentils. Heat to boiling; reduce heat. Cover and simmer 1 hour. Stir in lemon peel, lemon juice and spinach. Cover and simmer until spinach is tender, about 5 minutes. 4 servings (about 1 1/4 cups each. 260 calories per serving.)
