    lindseylcw's Note:

    This is a really thick comforting lentil and tomato soup with a bit of added interest. Great way to use up the veg left in the fridge at the end of the week. The tomatoes can be soft and not the freshest but need to be tasty.

      Absolutely exquisite soup! The flavours are lovely and fresh - roasting the vegetables mellows out the veg very nicely, and the nigella seed is a wonderful addition! I used Mock Chicken Stock, as I'm a vegetarian, and it was excellent. Thanks for sharing this beautiful recipe! Made for Zaar Newest Tag.

      I can understand why this made it into someone's best of 2009 cookbook, it was super! The roasted vegetables lend such a punch of flavor to it. I subbed cumin and mustard seeds for the nigella and used much less chili. The temperature is missing from step 3, so I roasted at 375 (I think 425 might have been better though). Yum!

      Let me just say WOW! This recipe is phenomenal and makes a lot! I am sure we got 8 or 9 servings easily out of it. I made this with Potato Wedges With Roasted Garlic Dip and it was a perfect complete meal. I didn't add nigella seed as I didn't have them but I did use Spanish olive oil. And made everything else the same. I will most definitely make this again. Thanks! Made for ZWT5 - Jammin Java Jivers
