I chose to make this as I have a good lot of lentils currently on hand and I like them a lot. I knew in advance that I would need to add salt, no problem. My surprise came when I started looking for the tomato paste and couldn't find any, oops. I subbed in Chili Sauce and I think that it worked out quite well, it really popped up the flavor level. I found that, in my case, it took almost double the stated time to really cook through. I don't know but that might be because I have lentils from this years harvest from a friends farm? Be that as it may, the outcome was a tasty soup that I topped with some rough cut chives out of my yard for an early dinner.
