We loved this hearty soup! I doubled up the recipe and used 2 parsnips in place of potatoes and I'm so glad I did as they gave it a lovely sweetness. I've frozen portions of this soup and they reheat well in the microwave. Thanks for posting!
We are not vegetarians, but still enjoyed this wonderful, full bodied soup. I also added some leftover veggies I had in the fridge (green beans, yams) and it was even better. It always tastes better the next day. I would serve this soup for any occasion.
This is simply wonderful and always goes well in the winters at my home. Its vegetarian and thats what I love most about it, specifically the combo of lentils and veggies!!
