4 1/2 good stars. I made this with brown lentils, a good canned plum tomatoes which I chopped myself, half the cilantro as I didn't have enough, white cooking onion, homemade chicken stock rather than bullion to be gluten/corn/soy free, garlic salt as I didn't have garlic powder, I just used less salt, butter instead if smen, rice flour to be gluten free and no optionals as DH likes it without We added freshly squeezed lemon juice to our individual portions which really made a big difference and something I recommend. Made for NA*ME Tag!
Made this during Ramadan but would enjoy this anytime of the year. I loved it. I did omit a few things due to personal preferrances. I thought this was a really good soup, I will make this again...especially in the fall, it was similiar to a creamy tomato soup full of flavor and different textures. I dont like lentils that much, but in this soup its a must have. Thank you for the recipe.
