This is a tasty soup! I modified it a bit. I added 1 tbs of garam masala, increased the pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp, and substituted a package of frozen chopped spinach. I sauteed the veggies and seasoning and then added everything to a crockpot which had the water (+2 morga veg bouillion cubes) and cooked it on high for about 6 hours. I used brown lentils, because the recipe didn't specify which kind of lentils and that's what I had on hand. I thought it needed more salt so I added about 1/2 tsp at the end.

This is my new favorite lentil soup! Spinach and curries are some of my favorite foods, so this was a shoo-in for my regular recipe rotation. The only way I modified it was by adding some garam masala in addition to the curry powder for a little extra spice. Yum! It's easy to make, and uses things I tend do have on hand.

Very tasty and easy to make soup! Added pre-ccoked chicken breast at the end. For beginners' sake, it should be clarified the heat should not be turned down below a simmer. I waited 1.5 hours for the lentils to soften before realizing my mistake!

I think this is one of the best lentil soups that I've ever made. It's very nicely spiced. I used garam masala curry powder. I was very pleased with how quick and easy this was to make, too. This is even better when reheated the next day. Thanx for sharing the recipe! It's a keeper!
