This recipe is exactly what I need right now: we're moving in about a week, and I haven't bought groceries in ages - trying to use up EVERYTHING in the pantry! This recipe calls for just about everything I'm trying to use up!! It was fun to make, and tastes great. Since we're also on an "extreme budget" right now, after serving it for lunch, I put in more ginger, sweet paprika, and cumin, and plenty more water, and I'm letting it simmer very slowly for a while. I'm hoping we can keep eating this for a few days ;-) Thanks for the great healthy inexpensive and delicious recipe!
Very good recipe, very tasty and healthy. Easy to cook. Definately recommend.
Wonderful HeartyI made 1/2 the amount using smoked paprika, doubled the cumin and when sauting the onions I added some diced garden grown eggplant just because I have so much and it was very tasty in this soup.
I liked this recipe a lot and am happy to have found a healthy, easy and different lentil soup to put in the rotation. I sauteed the onions with the spices (doubled the cumin) and used canned beans, so I just threw everything else in the pot at once the onions were softened. I used a 28oz can of whole tomatoes that I tore apart with my hands (I like the texture that way). I tasted it and added 2 tsp of sea salt and was worried it was bland, but after 30 minutes the flavors got lovely. I cooked it for another 30 minutes and it was perfect. Thanks Elizabeth!
I love lentil soup, and this was different than the way I usually make it and much better! Thanks Hajar for such a good recipe.
Delicious satisfying, and healthy while not difficult to prepare...what more could one want? Great for vegans. I have forwarded the recipe on to friends; I highly recommend this tasy soup. Thanks, Hajar!
