      Very good! I omitted the salt (personal preference) and used tomato paste instead of the sauce. Loved the mild smoky flavor from the gouda. Thanks for sharing!

      Fabulous soup! I wouldn't change a thing next time, but this time I put in 1 1/2 teaspoons chili (2 would have been fine), did use great northern beans, parsley instead of cilantro, and since I had tomato paste but not sauce, I put in about 3 ounces of that. Really yummy, it's going into my quick and easy cookbook! Cheese was great in this. Looking forward to leftovers for lunch. Thanks so much ellie!

      The only change I made when making this soup was to use just 1 1/2 teaspoons of the chili powder, but that was all! I like lentil soup quite a bit, & especially enjoyed this one, since the beans & the cheese gave it all an added boost! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Newest Zaar tag]
