    Bunny Erica's Note:

    A tasty and filling soup. You could make many alterations to the recipe depending on your taste - add a potato for soup a little thicker, substitute barley for some of the lentils, add a stick of celery. The miso paste is optional but it adds flavour without having to add too much salt and pepper.

      This was easy & delicious! I thought it looked better before pureeing - it looked 'muddy' afterwards. but THE PICKY ONE didn't pick out the carrots - instead she had seconds! great recipe, Bunny Erika! Made for PAC 9/07.

      Super easy and tasted great!!! I followed the recipe to a T, with the exception of the stick blender, both of my kids loved it (which is rare!)

      Fantastic recipe - very beginner friendly. We added an extra clove of garlic, omitted the miso and were a bit more generous with the thyme :) After making this soup roughly 10 times, it's more and more delicious with every attempt!
