    Engrossed's Note:

    I don't remember where I got this recipe but it's good and healthy! If you enjoy a stronger flavor feel free to increase the garlic, ginger and spices. I usually do in all recipes I make but I hadn't made this in awhile so I posted the original.

      Great flavor! I did add more of the garlic, curry powder and ginger as others suggested, and I also needed to add more broth simply because it started getting dry before the lentils were done. At that point, instead of chopping more garlic and ginger, I just added a little garlic powder and powdered ginger, and it still tasted great. Thank you for sharing this!

      I just made this for lunch and it's very nice. After reading the other reviews I increased the ginger and curry and was glad that I did. I used veggie stock in place of the chicken broth and water. It's a no hassle soup to make, just toss it all in a pot and let it simmer for an easy and tasty soup.

      This is a quick and healthy soup to make on a weeknight. I left off the oil and used far more that 2 teaspoons of ginger. I am a true garlic lover and in place of 1 teaspoon, I used 3 cloves minced fine and increased the curry powder to 2 teaspoons and would consider maybe adding another 1/2 teaspoon. I had a quart of chicken broth and used the full amount instead of adding water.
