    FlemishMinx's Note:

    This hearty and satisfying soup takes the chill off of any wintry evening. I like to serve it with Tabasco sauce on the side but if you want less heat, a few drops of vinegar will work nicely. Serve with lots of warm crusty bread. Recipe originally to be found in Delia Smith's "Complete Cookery Course" and her "Complete Illustrated Cookery Course".

      Made this with fresh crusty baguettes. A very hearty soup. I used a can of spicy diced tomatoes and also added some spiced heat.

      We liked this Lentil Soup a lot. To spice it up a little I used a can of Rotel instead of the diced tomatoes and added a little hot sauce to the final soup. Loved the cabbage. Thanks for posting.

      A good and different variation for Lentil Soup! I really liked the addition of the cabbage but wished I added some hot sauce to the soup. Thanks for sharing!
