Lentil (plus) soup

This was an easy one for a quiet evening.

In my parents' pantry was a bag of "soup mix" consisting of mixed grains and pulses (lentils, split peas, barley, pasta). I converted this into a thick soup by cooking some onion, carrot, celery, and turnip in olive oil until the onions were soft then adding the grains, water, bay leaf, and some dried rosemary. This simmered until the grains were finished and then we ate it drizzled with a bit more olive oil.
