      I read recipes for Lentil Soup all day looking for just the right one to take to a Soup Luncheon ..... then I found this one and it was perfect. I used a pound package of lentils and it made a huge pot. Very tasty!! Thanks for posting.

      This was delicious! My fiance (the vegetarian) and I (the carnivore) loved it - it was earthy, substantial and flavourful! We made a few tiny adjustments - we used a handful of brown rice instead of the potato, and after the 10 hours of cooking, we added an extra 2 cups or so of broth, and almost double the lemon juice, as well as freshly cracked black pepper. We then cooked it on low for 15 minutes, then on high for another 20-30.
