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!

We love this version of lentil soup. We enjoyed the richness of the tomato paste and the tart flavor from the vinegar. I halved this recipe and it makes plenty of soup. The only change I made was to add a "lonely" parsnip that I had leftover in the fridge. The carrots and onions didn't seem to mind. : )
