This turned out a little bland. I thought for sure that it would be rich and flavorful because of the vinegar and dijon, but I'm thinking that maybe I should have added more than a tablespoon of each as the recipe indicates. Also, I did this in the slowcooker so I really though the flavors would have come out more. I think I'd make this again, but would probably add some fresh thyme and more dijon to jazz it up a bit.

I absolutely LOVED this soup! I followed the recipe as written, just adding a little garam masala. I loved the dijon mustard and red wine vinegar flavor. I think that fresh parsley is the best way to go with this recipe. I used extra fresh parsley for garnish. Thanx for sharing!

I experimented by adding parsnips, cream and tarragon. I used veg stock instead of water. I left out the celery. It's -10°C (15°F) here today and this soup is a perfect winter warmer and easy to prepare. It's very filling and has a great texture. When you add cream I think it looks better too. The original recipe may have been a little bland, but all the more reason to experiment and see what other flavours will work. But all in all it's a very nice soup. Thanks for sharing.

I absolutely love this recipe and have told everyone so! Like most people, I've made a few modifications: I use only one cup of onion and double the celery, carrots and (fresh) parsley. I added 2 diced red potatoes, used red wine vinegar and substituted spicy brown mustard (my favorite) instead of dijon. Thanks for sharing it. 5 STARS!

I used one quart broth since I like my lentils a little thick. I just watched it and added more broth as needed. I added some cooked sliced sausages when the soup was done to make a complete meal and thought the seasonings were just right.
