Loved this soup! It's not too thick or too runny. Partially pureeing the lentils gives the soup just the right texture. I used some garam masala and some hot curry powder. I topped the soup with some fresh chopped cilantro. Thanx for posting this simple, yummy soup!

Made this recipe yesterday as written. Unfortunately, after 6 hours of cooking on low and then a while on warm, the lentils were still crunchy. Very disappointing. Flavor was good, though.

This makes a thin soup and needs more curry or other flavourings to make it more tasty.

I really enjoyed this soup. It is not a thick stodgy lentil soup but rather a thinner tomato soup that just happens to have lentils in it. Perfect for a spring or autumnal day. I didn't bother with the sauteing etc and just dumped everything in the crockpot. I may have missed out on some of the curry and onion taste as a result but this is still a jolly good soup that goes well with a good French bread. My crockpot was on Auto [1 hour on high then the rest on Low] and 6 hours later when I returned from work, the lentils were almost mush. Great recipe!

My family LOVES this soup! All 6 of my kids AND my hubby eat it up and always ask for seconds! I use just a touch more curry and I usually add some cubed kielbasa or cooked chicken near the end!

Very good. Very satisfying. I do agree with you that a little more curry is needed. I also added some garlic and carrot. I will make this often.
