Thanks for the recipe! I used split red lentils from the Arabic store, which cooked about 10-15 minutes faster than whole lentils. I only had 1 Maggi Chicken cube left, so I added 4 teaspoons of Maggi Tomato and Chicken flavored powder. I am saving this to my favorites and will definitely make it again!
Very good base start. Since I use only organic ingredients and wanted a vegitarian dish I modified it a bit. The Maggi cubes while containing no actual chicken has way to much sodium for me and I used my own vegetarian broth that I create. I also added diced carrots and then put the entire soup in the blender for a crushed lentil soup. My family loved it and it is now a staple in our diet.
This is fantastic!! As other reviewers have stated, the seasoning is spot on. It's a very fast, easy to prepare, nutrient-packed lunch or dinner. I highly recommend this recipe!
Best lentil soup I ever made. However, I did pur
I would not call this healthy using Maggi cubes. Check the ingredients in those things!
I made this tonight and have to admit I was disappointed. It had very little flavor. I thought when I started it I would saute the onion and garlic along with some carrots and celery and then add cumin & turmeric then add it all to the pot but I decided to follow the recipe. After it was done I ended up adding another teaspoon of both seasonings and more parsley, upon blending it I decided to add lemon juice and used a whole medium lemon. Some salt and pepper and that made it turn out much more flavorful. Next time I will use broth and saut? the veggies and spices first. But its a decent foundation for lentil soup.
This is fairly authentic and a staple in our house.
Simple to make yet big on flavor. The fresh lemon slices/juice really add great flavor. I made this as written, but added extra fresh parsley. I love that this is made with ingredients that I almost always have on hand. Thanx!
This is one of my favorite soups. It's easy, fast and tastes very good.
