This soup went really well with Sharon123's Whole Grain Pan Rolls recipe #47255. Flavors were really good. I was not satisfied with the results of all the vegetable. Next time I make this, I will wait until the last 10-15 minutes to add the cabbage and green peppers as they had turned to mush by the time the carrots and lentils were cooked through. My family prefers both of these vegetables to be tender-crisp when they are cooked. These vegetables are also much more appealing to the eye when they are tender-crisp. Thank you for sharing this recipe Charlotte!
