    twissis's Note:

    This recipe is from *Stroganov to Strudel* (Great Traditional Cooking From Germany, Austria, Hungary & the Czech Republic). Per the intro, "Soups are a favourite in this area, served either as a main meal or a starter. Hearty soups range from creamy Czech soups w/light dumplings, to the famous fruit soups of Hungary & chunky soups of Germany, such as *Lentil Soup* containing sliced frankfurter." If your kids are not entirely opposed to veggie-based soups, then the sight of frankfurter slices may well tempt them to happily eat this healthy soup as a 1-dish meal. (Nearly all the time given is cook time, but I also allowed 15 min for ingredient prep). *Enjoy* !

      This is very simple to make and tastes excellent over spaetzle (German noodles). I didn't have any leeks, so simply left this out. And I used chicken broth instead of water (a bit less so it was thicker on the spaetzle). This was almost exactly like the one my mother (who is 100% German) always made. Thanks!

      Loved this, although I lacked some ingredients. Also added a handful of potato cubes for substance and a dash of white vinegar at the end.

      My husband loved this. I thought it was way too runny and thin. If we make it again, I'll thicken the broth.
