We really enjoyed this soup and were surprised it didn't need any spices. The lemon and wine really carried it. I did adjust the amounts a bit, using less oil, lentils, broth and wine and more vegetables and dill. I also added garlic, decreased the cooking time, and cooked the wine into it a little bit. It has a nice flavor.
I'm so sorry, I really didn't care for this at all. I did use green lentils and turkey broth, so I'm not sure if that made a difference or not. I cut the chardonnay to 1/2 cup and I found it way TOO strong for the soup. I had to cook it for an extra half hour to cook off some of the wine. I also think the dill/rosemary/lemon combo was a bit strange. Thank you for posting, I just don't think this was a good match to our taste buds.
Loved this soup!!!
We enjoyed this very much, a fresh and flavourful soup that took little preparation. I used Summer Dreaming Vegetable Broth, which I had made previously and frozen. Otherwise I made as directed, and this made a lovely supper, served with Dilly Rolls. Made for Aus/NZ swap#29, thank you, Tracey Mae!
I have made this for dinner and the verdict from my early sampling is that it is great. I used green lentils and used mushrooms instead of carrots and vegetable stock - when I serve it I may top it with pesto - thanks for a great dinner for tonight TraceyMae
This was so good! I made it vegetarian by using veggie broth. My carnivore son and his vegetarian girlfriend both loved it! I only had rosemary and not dill, and I also discovered I had no chardonnay, so left that out too... I didn't find the lemon at all overpowering like the previous reviewer. Will be making this again - thanks! Made for Aus/NZ recipe swap.
Very nice soup recipe and simple to make. I used an unoaked chardonnay and at the table we seasoned with a spice blend called Mediterrano and served with a crusty bread. We found the lemon over powered the other flavours just a bit so will cut back on that by at least half next time but that is purely a taste preference. **Mediterrano is a gourmet sea salt & pepper blend with herbs. I found it in great neighbourhood bakery and coffee shop in Peachland, BC. It's a Canadian product and the price point is good. Around $10.00 for 150grams.
