      I followed this right on target and we loved it! Yum, lentils! I also used fresh parsley, cilantro, and ginger. The orzo was just as completely yummy and was so good for comfort anld so good for your soul. And the cinnamon was just the right amount, and gave this a delightful twist. I also used fresh tomatoes with the juice from the tomato instead of canned tomatoes. Loved it, and will be making it again this weekend, made for *Veg Vegan* Swap September 2009.

      Delish! I really liked this quite a bit. The spices and herbs were right on. It's quite simple to make as well. Only change I might make in the future would be to use a grain instead of pasta (maybe quinoa), just to up the nutritional valu. Thanks for posting, I'd make this again for sure. Made for the April 08 veggie swap.

      This soup was easy to make and delicious. I used chicken broth instead of vegetable because that's what I had and I didn't use cilantro because I've never tried it and wasn't sure I would like it. I love all kinds of soup and I will definitely be making this again.
