  3. Add the celery and stir-cook for 1 minute.

  7. Cover and simmer for about 1 hour, or until the lentils are tender.
  8. The soup may be prepared in advance up to this point.
  9. Season the soup with salt and fresh pepper to taste and discard the parsley-bay leaf bundle.
  10. Ladle the soup into warm bowls and serve steaming hot.
