Red Lentil Soup

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Terese

I really love this soup. I got the recipe from an old Vogue magazine and I've been making it for nearly 10 years. It's great in winter served with crusty bread. You can make it more heartier by adding an extra onion together with more lentils and stock.

Looks like a great soup and I just now realized how naieve I was to attempt correction of a soup I hadn't made, back in 2003 when I first "reviewed" it. You're inspiring me!
