This is wonderful! The cinnamon and cloves added such a delicious twist.....I thought I wasn't a lentil fan, but this soup has changed my mind. I absolutely loved it. Like the previous reviewer, I had to add more liquid. Made for my adopted chef from PAC. Thanks for the great recipe! Saving to my keeper book.

This is a very good soup! I made it as written except I needed to add more liquid as it cooked. Thick and hearty and perfect for a sub-zero night. I served it with a spinach salad and breadsticks. Thanks for sharing!
