Very nice and simple lentil soup. I sauteed the onion, and sauteed a couple of cloves of minced garlic with it to replace the garlic powder. Based on the saltiness comments, I skipped the sea salt, but used the full amount of soy sauce. That seemed about right for salt for us. The whole family enjoyed the soup.
