    Directions

    1. Heat oil and butter in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat until melted. Add celery, carrot, onion and cook, stirring occasionally until the vegetables have softened, about 7-10 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Season with several generous pinches of salt & pepper.
    2. Add tomatoes (with their juices), stock, lentils and thyme. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer, which should take about 10 minutes. Once simmering, reduce heat to low and continue simmering, covered, until lentils and vegetables are soft, about 30 minutes.
    3. Using a stick blender, puree some of the soup to thicken it. Or using a regular blender, transfer about 2 cups soup to blender and puree until smooth. If soup is too thick, add more stock until it reaches desired consistency.
    4. Ladle soup into bowls and if desired, top with a dollop of sour cream.
