Vegetarian Jewish Lentil Soup

When I was a teenager
I had friends who lived on Long Beach Island. They had friends who belonged to  Temple Beth Yeshua in New York, a messianic temple. This recipe came from one of
their friends and passed on to me through my friends. (You CAN make it  non-vegetarian by adding some bacon, ham or a hambone.)

Vegetarian Jewish Lentil Soup

Soak 1/2 cup lentils in water while doing the veggies.

In large pot add:
1 TB butter and 2 TB oil

3-4 cloves of fresh garlic, finely  chopped
2 small chopped onions
1 large stalk celery, chopped
1/4 cup celery leaves
2 carrots, sliced diagonally
2 TB parsley

Cook, stirring, for 5 mins over medium heat. When onions are soft, drain lentils and add to pot. Add 1 1/2 quarts water, salt
and pepper. Bring to a boil. Cover and simmer till veggies are soft and tender; 1-1 1/2 hours.
