1 Place the lentils, vegetables, and tomato paste in a large pot. Add cold water to cover by 2 inches. Bring to a simmer. Cook 20 minutes. Add salt to taste and more water if needed to keep the ingredients covered. Cook 20 minutes more or until the lentils are very soft.
2 Drain the contents of the pot, reserving the liquid. Put the lentils and vegetables in a processor or blender and puree, in batches if necessary, until smooth. Pour the lentils back into the pot. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Reheat gently, adding some of the cooking liquid if needed.
3 In a large skillet, heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat. Add the bread in a single layer. Cook until toasted and brown on the bottom, 3 to 4 minutes. Turn the bread pieces over and brown about 3 minutes more.
4 Remove the soup from the heat. Spoon into bowls. Top each bowl with a slice of toast. Serve hot, with a drizzle of olive oil
