Soup with Puy lentils and mushrooms
Puy lentils, mushrooms and red wine are the basis of this lovely soup. Puy lentils are small French lentils that stay quite form while cooking. The first choice of mushrooms is shiitake, but other firm mushrooms are also an option. Because this soup has a lovely distinct flavour, it combines very well with a good red wine and some French baguette.
