Alton Brown's Lentil Soup. This soup is awesome - my husband and I love it! Unfortunately, the calorie counter website keeps pulling up chicken broth instead of veggie broth when calculating calories for this recipe - calories and fat are actually lower than what is listed.

Recipe Ingredients for Lentil Soup

3 garlic cloves, chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 quarts vegetable broth
1 pound lentils
