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!

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.

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!
