I have been making this soup for years. I normally use green lentils but use your preference. This is an excellent recipe for diabetics.

Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag game and yummo! I did add some garlic and beef bouillon cubes but otherwise followed the instructions. Definately a keeper. Thank you for such a tasty recipe.
