What a waste.

I made some lentil soup earlier in my cast-iron dutch-oven/pot. It's a new pot and I've seasoned it once and that seemed to do a good job. Anyway, I had a bowl of my soup as soon as it was ready, but I just went back to the stove to pack the leftovers up and clean the pot and the soup has turned from a muddy green broth to a dark sludge, nearly black.

Searching around the web, I think I found out this has to do with a sulphur reaction between the lentils and pot. A few things I'm not sure about:
Was the soup safe to eat in the first place? Is it safe to it now? Even if it is, it's not very appetizing. And do I need to re-season the pot?
