      Made this last night and the ginger is so overpowering! This might have been better without it all together. I also felt that the lentils needed to cook longer, as mine were pretty hard. In addition, I needed more stock, so I added a substantial amount more and the ginger was still too much. If I make this again, it would definitely be without any ginger, or if with any, the tiniest amount. 1 1/2 tablespoons is waaaayyyy too much. It is all you can taste. Not a good duplication of the progresso recipe but maybe it would be with more salt, more stock, and no ginger.

      I made this last night. I substituted fresh kale because I had so much in my garden and omitted the ginger because I didn't have any. It came out awesome! Great recipe!

      If you like Progresso Lentil soup, and I do, this is FABULOUS. It captures the savoryness of the soup (lentils can be a little pasty tasting in other recipes). The 1st time I made it I offered a taste in cognito to my husband and asked if he thought it was good. He said with hesitation (not wanting to offend me) that it tasted like Progresso. TRUE STORY. well done!
