    Nicole N's Note:

    From the cookbook Cooking on a Budget. Use whichever lentils you have - we like it with red lentils, but it's very nice with green or brown lentils (or a combination). I occasionally will add a couple of rashers of diced bacon if I've got bacon on hand, but without the bacon it's a great vegetarian/vegan soup. This also freezes very well.

      My kids really love tomato soup and this one did not disappoint them. I loved that this one was quick to make and tasted very fresh. I also love that I didn't have to serve anything with this because the lentils were filling. I couldn't find red lentils, so I used plain dried lentils. Thank you Nicole N. Made for Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup.

      Yummy and simple. I wasn't exactly faithful to the recipe... I didn't have any celery and I don't like onions, so I used onion salt instead and added oregano, red pepper flakes and a bit of chili powder for a slightly spicy soup. Very tasty, though a bit boring without the added crunch of the vegetables.

      This is delicious, I made it on a cool Sunday afternoon and served it with some freshly baked bread. Thanks for sharing
