      This was not bad, but the taste of the vinegar was a little strong, I thought. Added quite a bit of water to get it to a thick soupy consistency. I couldn't get my family to eat this.

      I was looking for something hearty, health and heart friendly...I found it. This is a great lentil recipe. It went down well with the family. I absolutely love the flavour that the lemon and balsamic vinegar gave the soup. The addition of these 2 ingredients certainly lifted this humble soup to a higher level. Goodonya gbmom for posting the recipe. A keeper and a winner.
