      Great healthy soup and easy too! I stuck with the recipe, making just a few minor changes. I don't like celery so I left it out. I used 1 onion, which was probably a little less than 2 cups, Hungarian Paprika, 1/2 yellow & 1/2 green split peas and chick stock made from a paste (I'm currently out of homemade stock). I like the creamy texture so I pureed it all in the food processor and had a taste before putting it away. I'm excited to be taking some to work for lunch tomorrow.

      We eat lots of lentil and veg soups, so I don't give out 5 stars loosly! We loved this for the fact I had everything in it on hand, it was simple and it had excellent flavour and a little bite with the herbs ad spices in there. It made a lovely lunch for us and I've 8 generous serves sitting ready to go in the freezer. I took Sydney Mike's advice and crushed this with my potato masher for a lovely texture and I added a couple of tablespoons of red wine vinegar and some chopped parsley at the end. The vinegar is an amazing adition to lentil soups and I recommend it to you to try sometime.

      Wow, this soup is really, really yummy! It has a slightly sweet flavour from the sweet potato and carrot and yet a hearty touch from the spices. I particularly enjoyed the addition of thyme and laurel to it. I opted for the non pureed version and it was delicious and also very pretty! I only cooked my soup for 20 minutes as my lentils and veggies were perfectly done by then. THANKS SO MUCH for sharing this wonderful recipe with us, Debbs! I cant wait to make it again!
