Very good! I did throw in a few extra veggies. I didn't have time for the crockpot, so I did it on the stove. Stovetop took about 3 hours start to finish. I brought the lentils to a boil, and let cook about an 1 hour over med-high heat, covered, then lowered to low for another 2 hours, covered. Great recipe!
Delicious! I wasn't sure about the AUTO setting, so cooked mine on high 4 to 5 hours. The lentils were soft and the apricots did seem to disappear. The consistency was pretty thick, almost like a stew, but I prefer that anyway(more stays on my spoon:^) Loved the mix of spices and the turmeric gave it a nice color. This was super easy. I'll be sure to make it often.
I have made it several times using a crockpot and it is very easy and absolutely delicious! I serve it with cornbread. A friend made it and substituted raisins for apricots. She also loved it. Mrs. Spike
I enjoyed this soup very much and will make it often! Next time I will puree it to hide the onions from my boyfriend!
Absolutely gorgeous - I made it on the stovetop, as I wanted to make it for dinner tonight. Ingredients as stated, simmered for about an hour or so - turns more or less into stew.
I had high hopes for this soup but wasn't really crazy about it. I even added extra seasonings (like curry powder, garam masala) but still felt like it was pretty boring. Glad I cut the recipe in half because I did not feel like eating these leftovers.....but my boyfriend liked it well enough so he ate them.
Tried it with a little tomato paste, ground ginger, no coriander, and lemon pepper - delish!
I tried this as I had some dried apricots to use up in the cupboard. It's a keeper in our house though I did have to add more lentils to make it a thicker consistency. I think I might increase the spices next time as it was sweet enough to have a bit more bite! Heated up lovely for lunch the next day too. Well done.
We really enjoyed this super easy soup, which I also think will freeze great for lunches! Thanks for sharing!
The apricots make this lentil soup really sweet - which compliments the cilantro really well. Great tasting and filling vegetarian meal - I'd make this again.
