This is a wonderful soup! I made it as written, except that I doubled both the garlic and the cumin as they are some of my favorite flavors. This was very easy, and very filling- perfect for a cold, wet day. I'll definitely make again.

Oops--I forgot to add the lemon first time around, but very much enjoyed the warm flavor without it. Will try reheated soup with lemon to see how the taste changes. Based on my mistake, loved everything about this soup--easy, hearty, attractive and healthy. With or without lemon, this soup is a keeper--thanks TxGriffLover!

After making this soup for the first time, it became a weekly dinner. It's so delicious and so easy! I make it with veggie broth for a nutritious vegetarian meal, but it also tastes great with a can of chicken thrown in. I chop up some celery and a carrot to put in with the lentils, too. Even my eight-year-old niece, who turns up her nose at almost anything cheese-less, gets excited when I make this soup.

Delicious. I used red lentils. Since I brought it to work I didn't use lemon juice and olive oil. It simmered for only 20 minutes and it was ready. Delicious. Thanks TxGriffLover :) Made for 123 hit wonders

Quick and easy to prepare with only onions and garlic to cut up. I used red lentils and added more garlic (can't have too much garlic) and cumin. The lemon was an interesting change - it's a good flavoursome soup.

This was a marvelously, flavorful lentil soup! The added lemon juice and drizzle of olive oil was a nice touch. I used chicken broth this time, but will try veg broth next. This recipe is so easy , and I always have the ingredients on hand. So it's definitely gonna be a regular dish in this house. Thanks for sharing.
