Amazing recipe! It is very very inexpensive, and the flavour is fantastic! I left out the coriander because I was feeling lazy, used vegetable stock in place of chicken, and pureed the soup in 2 batches in the blender and it came out perfectly. Definately nice enough to serve at a dinner party. Thanks for posting!
Surprisingly delicious. I didn't use onions because I don't like onions, but this was still a great, filling, and healthy soup. It didn't taste sweet at all.
What a great way to use lentils and create a delicious and healthy dish. I used my hand blender to puree... and I used cilantro that comes in a tube (sounds strange I know... but there are herbs available in the produce section that last longer than fresh herbs). I also cut the recipe in half and used only a half of an onion. This is a keeper... but remember to serve only to those who like cilantro (some people are very adverse to the taste, but I love it!)
This is my 5 year olds FAVORITE soup. He is packing it on his first day of kindergarten!!!!! Now that is what I call COMFORT food!!!! I do everything that the recipe says except the coriander/cilantro, just not a big fan. The only other thing I differ in is I don't peel the sweet potatoes. That's where all the nurtients are. Having said that this soup is AWESOME!!!!!!!!
Yum, yum, and yum again. Thank goodness for the poster who explained that this recipe is asking for a half cup of cilantro, not a half cup of ground coriander!! The lemon also really added something at the end. The only thing I would change next time is to boil the lentils and spices for about 20 minutes before I add the potatos and onions. The potatos were really falling apart before the lentils were done.
So good! I didn't bother pureeing the soup and thought it was very delicious. I would advice people in the United States that when the recipe calls for 1/2 cup coriander it is referring to what you find in supermarkets here as fresh cilantro (don't use dried coriander seeds or ground coriander - this would give it a very different flavor).
just realized I forgot to add the lemon juice, but it was still terrific. Had some for dinner and froze the rest.
Skipped the cayanne for my toddler's benefit, but this is still delicious. The lentils are there, but only lending thickness and body to the soup. I'll definately be making this again!
I made this last night, halving the spices, for the baby. (My 8 month old hates 'baby food, but adores blended soups with onion and garlic!) He went nuts for it, and I thought it tasted pretty good too. I think I'll help him eat it!
SEN-SATION-AL!!!! Can I even say WOW!!! Absolutely LOVED this soup, true! Snuck in grated zucchini too! Definite keeper this is for me! LOVED combination and low fat! GREAT recipe!
