      I made as per recipe and it was 2 very generous and fillings serves for the DM and I, making for a great lunch on this rather chilly day. I blended using a stick blender and used red lentils and served with croutons on top. Thank you Lauralie41, made for Potluck Tag to take to Lainey's Simpley Delicious Lunch Party.

      We truly enjoyed this delicious dish Lauralie. It was so flavorful and very quick and easy to make. I used all the ingredients listed but did not puree, as we prefer our soups chuncky. What a treat this was, my picky dh loved it. Needless to say, we will be enjoying this often. Thank you so much for sharing. :)
