One of my favorite recipes! I think lentil soups can taste so....lentily... but this is stellar. I did use 1 tbs of pickled ginger and no chilies, and pepper to taste. I made it on the stovetop, I think it's much easier then slowcooking because it only takes 12 minutes to cook lentils. Next time I will remember to put 1 Tbs vinegar in the poaching liquid and turn it down!
