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. :)
I made this soup without the celery. (just a personal preference) I did add a some cumin & garlic powder to the soup. Made for NA*ME Tag
This is a good take on a traditional lentil soup. I did add a couple table spoons of ground cumin for a more authentic flavor. I served this soup with toasted pita and lemon wedges.
This was such a nice and easy soup. I used red lentils and used a vegetarian chicken flavored stock to keep it a vegetarian dish. I stuck to pretty much the same veggies except that I had a small leek that needed to be used up so I chopped that up and threw it in too. I also used the leaves on my celery stalks which always are nice in soups. I used a can of chopped tomatoes too because I am too lazy to peel a tomato. Reading the previous reviews, I decided to sort of go halfway with the puree and used a hand stick blender to blitz a bit of the soup but still leave some bits chunky. It turned out well and had a thick texture a bit like a chowder. Thank you for a very enjoyable meal. Made for the vegetarian/vegan swap.
When I was cooking the veggies, I was looking for the dried lentils. I was sure I got red lentils. But no. So I used canned chickpeas. I rinsed them. And I pureed all the soup after. It's delicious that way. Later I'll try with dried lentils. Thanks Lauralie :) Made for Market tag.
My DH is from Kenya (not North Africa, but still) and he went nuts for this soup-told his friends about it. I blended only half the soup and mixed it back together for a nice texture.
Yummy Soup, great for the cold weather we are getting. I kept to the recipe and didn't change a thing. The texture and flavours were perfect. Thank you Lauralie41
I really enjoyed this soup! I used just a little olive oil (no margarine) and added a chopped jalapeno. When lentils were tender I used a stick blender to make it smooth! What a wonderful tastey way to increase the fiber in our diet!! Thanks Lauralie41!
Although I loved the health aspects of this soup with all the vegetables and lentils, I thought that it turned out very bland and was nothing exciting to look at. I don't think I would make this soup, in particular, again.
