1 large onion, chopped (1 cup)
2-6 garlic cloves, diced
3 ribs celery, chopped (3/4 cup)
3 carrots, chopped
2 cups red lentils
7-8 cups vegetable broth or water
1 large can pumpkin (no sugar)
1/4 teaspoon marjoram
1.4 teaspoon dried thyme
lots of Tabasco
 
Preparation:
1. Combine onion, garlic, celery, carrots, lentils, and broth or water in a soup pot.  Bring to a boil.
2. Lower heat and simmer, covered, 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft and lentils have turned to mush.

Tasty.  Add 1.4 t. curry powder and put onion and garlic end towards the end to preserve their nutrients.
