Horst Mager's Hearty Lentil Soup

This is from Horst Mager's Rheinlander Restaurant in Portland, Oregon - wonderful German food. The soup is very tasty and filling. When I make it we just have a loaf of good bread to go with and that's all for dinner.
(Here is a picture of the Rheinlander... will post a picture of the soup when I make some)
