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.

Yummy! I added a lot more water cause it was thick a lot and it's still thick. I'm glad I added water. I used beef bouillon cubes to give it more taste. I used green lentils, 2 1/2 cup cabbage, baby carrots, a red bell pepper. And at the end, I decided to omit the spinach cause it was too thick already. I love it like that. Thanks Lorrie.

I used leftover roast beef & 1 cup of soup dried beans (had them in house). As stated by a previous reviewer this soup has a lot of flavour. I plan on making this again. Thank you Lorrie Montreal!
