Great recipe - simple & easy to execute. I love lentils and am happy when autumn comes around to make a nice hearty batch of lentil soup. I added a half can of diced tomatoes and a teaspoon of ground ginger for some kick. Perfect! I microwaved some bacon strips and added them on top of a dollop of sour cream upon serving to my husband. He loved it. Thanks again - for the coming autumn and winter this dish is a keeper!
Sometimes when I am putting together a recipe I am just not so sure I am going to like it. That's how I felt with this one (I knew my husband would like it) but BOY WAS I WRONG! This soup is fantastic! A hearty, well flavoured soup and the barley just made the dish! As you state, it is almost stew like... perfect for the cold winter day we are having here! I halved the recipe due to my trepidation but now I am sad because I wish I had doubled it!! Made for the Sand & Spices challenge for the Voracious Vagabonds ZWT6
Delicious! This is now my favorite soup, and I love soup! I followed the recipe exactly, except I left out the celery since I didn't have any. Next time I will be sure that I have some! This was so easy to make with such delicious results. Thank you for sharing your recipe!
Made this for Recipe Swap #78 ~ July 2013 (Aussie Swap) and boy I am so glad! I followed the instructions only using homemade chicken broth and fresh herbs. I have never used the red lentils and this dish was not only delicious but very eye appealing. Thank you for posting.
This made for a yummy lunch today. I used a rich home made stock and fresh herbs from my garden in place of the dry ones. It's a simple recipe and we loved it thank you morgainggeiser
This is excellent and so easy to make! The herbs give perfect flavor to this soup. You don't even need to add salt or pepper. I don't care that it is 60 degrees outside today, I'm going to have another bowl. Even without soda crackers, which is abnormal for me.
