1 tbsp olive oil

2.  Add the roasted peppers and cook for at least 3  minutes.  Add the diced tomatoes and cook up to boiling point.

3.  Puree the tomato and pepper mixture and return to pot.  (i use my handy dandy immersion blender, less work and less mess)

4.   Add the cook lentils and chicken stock or broth.  Season with salt and pepper.  Let it simmer.

      Just add more broth or water if the soup is too thick.  It's your call if you want a little more liquid or not.
