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.

Like ms. ladypit, I enjoyed this soup but did not find it to be as strongly spiced as I hoped. I used a full tablespoon of ginger in my dish and replaced the olive oil with cooking spray. I will definitely make again as I love healthy lentil soups but will play a bit more with the aromatics.

Nice soup. Super easy to put together and let it just simmer while other things were being done. I found it to be blander then I expected with all the ginger and curry powder. Next time I'd use a garam masala I think, and a little more ginger. I used no oil in this (just cooking spray) to try to reduce the calories and fat a bit. Then I froze it for later eating. I'll let you know if it freezes well!

This is great soup, the ginger and curry powder spike up the taste. I'm always looking for healthy recipes, and this will be added to my favorites. Made for Alphabet Soup Game. Thanks for posting a winner!
