Simple Lentil Soup

Fast.  Easy.  Low Carb.  Simple.  Comforting.  Soul-Satisfying.  Savory.  Filling. Low Calorie.

Simple Lentil Soup
1 Cup French Green Lentils
1 Yellow Onion
1 Leek
8 Cups Water
Salt and Pepper (to taste)
4 Vegetable Buillion Cubes
1 Bay Leaf
Dash of Olive Oil

Begin by rinsing lentils in a fine mesh strainer and set aside.  Thoroughly clean and trim ends from leek.  Finely chop onion and leek and saute both in a large pot in a dash of Olive Oil until onion starts to brown.  Add lentils and remaining ingredients and stir.  Bring to a boil and reduce heat to lowest simmer.  Simmer for 45 minutes or until lentils reach desired texture.  Remove bay leaf (or leave bay leaf in and whoever gets it in their bowl gets to make a wish!). and serve immediately.  Allow leftovers to cool before storing in tightly sealed container in refrigerator.
