Yummy soup on a chilly night! Used chipotle powder instead of red pepper. Halved the recipe and used red lentils. Delish! Thanks breezermom!

Very nice soup! This has a nice, thick texture and plenty of flavor from the seasonings. The combination of vegetables was very nice. Thanks for sharing!

This didn't work out so great for me. I halved the recipe and had to keep adding liquid, and in the end it was really a thick stew. Also, there wasn't enough seasoning/flavor for me. Thanks for taking the time to post the recipe, this just wasn't what I was looking for. .
