Turkey from the deli ? or from last night's dinner ? makes this hearty soup especially substantial. You can easily do without the meat, though; for a perfect vegetarian meal, the mushrooms and lentils can stand on their own.

Recipe Ingredients for TURKEY, MUSHROOM AND LENTIL SOUP

2 tbs cooking oil
1 onion, chopped
10 oz mushrooms, sliced thin
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbs lite soy sauce
1 cup lentils
1 3/4 teaspoons salt
2 quarts water
2 cups cooked turkey, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley

Recipe Directions for TURKEY, MUSHROOM AND LENTIL SOUP

  1. In a large pot, heat the oil over moderately low heat.

  2. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes.

  3. Increase the heat to moderately high. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 5 minutes.

  4. Stir in the garlic and the soy sauce.

  5. Add the lentils, salt, and water to the pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, partially covered, stirring occasionally, until the lentils are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.

  6. Stir the turkey, pepper and 1/4 cup of the parsley into the soup.

  7. Top each serving with some of the remaining 1 1/2 tablespoons parsley.

  8. Variations: Try 2 cups of diced cooked chicken or ham instead of the turkey.

  9. Wine Recommendation: Zinfandel is the one truly American red, so why not serve it with our native bird? It's more than poetic license: Turkey's strong, gamey flavor, and the earthy lentils as well, requires a robust and fruity wine.
