      We used ham broth and red lentils and no mint. The first day the texture was questionable but the next day it was great and with the addition of some leftover ham, this soup rocks!!

      This was good. I wanted something light. But I guess in a way that is a matter of opinion. To me meat is heavy I wanted vegetarian fair. This meets the mark. I did not have mint so left that out.

      This is good. I used an unrefined extra virgin olive oil, homemade chicken stock as that is what I had on hand (well flavoured), puy brown dry lentils, a good quality canned (Primo brand), whole plum tomatoes which I chopped myself as I find they taste better than buying the chopped ones. I used dried oregano, no optional mint, sea salt and the rest. I don't think I will make this soup again.
