Greek Lentil Soup
FAKI SOUPA
Makes about 10 cups

1 pound lentils
2 medium onions, chopped
3 celery branches, chopped
2 small carrots, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
2 bay leaves
1 teaspoon oregano
1/2 cup red wine or vinegar
salt and pepper
olive oil

Soak lentils overnight; wash and drain them. Saute all ingredients
except wine or vinegar and lentils with olive oil in a heavy soup
pot. (Reserve salt and pepper until later.) Add lentils and enough
water to cover the lentils, stir, bring to boil, reduce heat, and
simmer covered for about 45 minutes. While cooking, check periodically
to see that the water covers the lentils, adding more water if
necessary. When the lentils are tender, add salt and pepper to
taste, and wine or vinegar (the Greeks prefer the vinegar). Serve
with Greek bread and boiled greens with olive oil and lemon juice.
