I really like using cumin so this suited me just fine. I also like lentils so this just couldn't loose!!! Very tasty soup. I usually add stuff to a recipe but I did not with this one and it was just great as is!! Thanks for another good one Dancer.

This was a nicely spiced, satisfying soup. I didn't blend half the soup, but I cooked the soup for an extra 20 minutes, which caused a lot of the beans to disintegrate and made the soup more thick. Thanks for sharing!
