Loved the noodles in this and good seasoning for a unique taste. I had to add some water at the end as it had all boiled away. Served with naan and veggies on the side.
This was delicious -- perfect soup for a snowy day here in "Downeast" Maine! As one reviewer suggested, I added a little extra cumin as well as 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne to give it a bit of heat. The technique of sauteing the spinach until almost brown and then adding it at the end was really different and definitely added to the flavor. I will definitely be making this again.
This was a really unique take on lentil soup which we thoroughly enjoyed. I made this exactly as posted, using a combination of red and green lentils. I am not a cumin fan, and was afraid it would be overpowering, but it wasn't. This was very hearty and filling.
This is a delicious and hearty lentil soup -- loved the addition of the vermicelli and of course, the spinach. Definitely a keeper. I served this with a chickpea, tomato, cucumber and feta salad. Next time I might add a bit more cumin to the soup and possibly a little heat (just my preference). Will definitely make this soup again. : )
