    A yummy, warming lentil soup. The carrots, red lentils and turmeric make it golden--a favorite at home and potlucks. Great with buttery golden crackers.

      Very nice soup. The flavor and consistency was lovely. I made it as written, except I added a tablespoon of chili paste for a little gentle heat.

      A light and mildly spicy but absolutely lovely tasting and looking soup. Excellent as a first course for a fine dinner. I made this for a light supper and halved this recipe and only added 2 teaspoons olive oil for the two of us. Otherwise no changes whatsoever. We had some veggies with a light cheese sauce to complement this for a vegetarian dinner. My BF and I both had seconds of the soup; he added a little vinegar too (I didn't feel it needed it), and I'm saving the rest for tomorrow's lunch. Very inexpensive to make, and VERY healthful. Thanks for posting this, I would definitely make this again.:D
