Heat half of the butter in a large pot and sauté the onion and soup vegetables until softened. Season with salt and pepper. Add the brown lentils to the pot, stir in the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Peel the potatoes, cut into cubes and add to the pot. Continue simmering for 20 minutes.
