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.
