Lentil Vegetable Soup with Yogurt

1/2 jalapeno with seeds, finely diced

4-5 cups chicken or vegetable broth

1/2 cup red lentils

salt and pepper, to taste

yogurt

What you do:

1.  Heat the olive oil in a large pot and cook onions until slightly browned.

2.  Add the garlic and leek and cook for a few more minutes.

3.  Add the rest of the vegetables and cook for about 5 minutes.

4.  Add the broth and lentils and cook for about 30 minutes, simmering on low.

5.  Add salt and pepper to taste, and serve with a dollop of  plain yogurt.
