    mattsgran's Note:

    My kids love this soup, friends who think they don't like lentil soup, love this soup. Hearty, and delicious on a crisp fall day, warms you to the soul on a cold snowy winter night. I like to serve this with our favorite cornbread.

      Super soup!! I used half homemeade chicken stock, half water, added in 3/4 cup celery because I like celery in most soups and finished this with some chopped parsley. Otherwise I followed your recipe. Wasn't sure which lentils to use, so I used a cup of red and a cup of green-the green hold their shape and the red go to mush and thicken the soup nicely so I think it was a good idea. I used 9 cups of water to get the thickness we like. Thanks for posting this recipe :-)

      This was delicious. I made this for dinner last night. My 2 year old and 4 year old even ate it. I made this in the crock pot, so I only used 4 cups of water since there wouldn't be much evaporating. I'm hoping the leftovers will be even better. Thanks for posting.
