    Sue Lau's Note:

    Great for a light supper! Serve with a crusty baguette spread with some roasted garlic, a tossed salad with wild baby greens and a balsamic vinaigrette and you're on your way! Make a double batch and the leftovers freeze well, too.

      This is delicious soup. I especially loved the saffron addition. It made a perfect filling, but not so heavy, dinner along with some Marrakech Tagine Bread. I glad that I made the entire recipe even though there were just two for dinner. Looking forward to the leftovers :D

      This was my first saffron experiment. I never knew it tasted so good! My 4 year old ate an entire bowl, dipping his bread into it and exclaiming "Mommy this is scrumptious!" So that is a 5 star in my book!

      A very good lentil soup recipe; great for our cold country winter nights. Served with crusty bread and Mirj's sweet potato pancakes, it was a winner dinner! Thank you!
