      Quite tasty. Did as the other reviewers before and skipped the initial cooking of the lentils. Did not use celery (personal preference), but used a whole diced yellow onion instead, and used the whole can of tomato paste because I did not measure the peas, just used the remainder of a bag and it looked to be more than a cup. Added a little Of Prudhomme's chicken seasoning at the end instead of the salt and served with cornbread. Even picky DH said it was "alright" - a pretty high compliment from that meateater!

      Loved the kick that the cayenne pepper gave this soup. I skipped Step 1 and went straight to Step 2 and then simmered for 30-45 minutes. Since I skipped Step 1, I did not use the second ingredient which was 2 cups of water. I ended up with 6 - 1 cup servings. So delicious that I'll be making this often. Made for *New Kids On The Block 2009* game
