      This just hit the spot for me. I'm putting into my favorites file. It's such a simple soup, yet so flavorful and delicious. I think the Italian style stewed tomatoes are key to the flavor for this soup. Oh so good. I only used a 14.5 oz. can of the tomatoes and it was enough. I also used vegetable broth to make this a vegetarian recipe. One more thing, I actually forgot that the lentils (mine were green since I couldn't find red) had to be cooked first, and threw them in uncooked. Oops! But, all I had to do was to simmer the soup longer - about double the time - and it worked just fine! Thank you!

      This was some fantastic soup. So delicious..mmmmm....I started off cooking the lentils (couldn't find the red ones at my store) But I started to cook 1 cup of lentil and wasn't thinking that it doubles in size so I landed up with 2 cups of lentils, so easy to fix, I just doubled up everything else which worked out great because I freeze them in containers for my lunches anyways. I had used my own homemade chicken stock and used 6 cups of it. I added 2 stalks of celery and some fresh parsley in the soup. I also just simmered it for a bit longer than 20 minutes only cause I find it gives more flavor to simmer longer. When I had it for lunch the next time I added a dollop of greek yogurt and it is delicious both ways. This soup is a definite keeper. Thanks so much for sharing Dreamer...we love it.

      Super yummy and easy to whip up! I started cooking my lentils, covered, in some boiling water about 20 minutes ahead of time. I added some extra garlic, but that's all I changed. I found this to be tasty and filling. That cool dallop of light sour cream (as suggested) was perfect. I think fresh cilantro or parsley would be nice in this as well. I will do that next time. Thanx for posting this!
