Very tasty and easy soup! I used a potato masher instead of blender to retain some texture. I would use a little less salt next time around, and maybe add a little bit of water to thin it out some. Also I'd make a double batch because it is so tasty! It is really a great, comforting lentil soup.
Two thumbs up! I enjoyed this as is (adding just a touch of red pepper flakes and lemon juice). My husband added garlic and chili powder. Either way, it was delicious. Reminds me of a cross between potato soup and split pea soup. It was also very easy to make--a big plus. We'll definitely make this again!
Blender made the potato glutinous. This was OK but I have made better red lentil soups before.
Used a whole onion, left the skin on the potato, used chicken broth instead of vege, and added Tabasco when served. Did not use cover while simmering. Used my submersion blender at the end of cooking instead of transferring to blender. This is a healthy soup and extremely easy to make. Thanks for sharing.
This is a win in my book, as the picky one, who professes to hate lentils, liked this - probably because he did not recognize them! I will probably add a little more paprika next time, but all in all, this is a winner. Easy to make and tasty.
Sometimes the simple and direct things taste the best. This soup is one of these things. I followed the recipe with the exception of the blending at the end (I like the chunky texture). This is very simple and direct, you reap a great reward for your minimal efforts. I will absolutely be making this again.
This soup is great. It tastes exactly like the one I had on a holiday in Turkey. Thank you so much for posting it.
Amazing!!!! Would give 10 stars. Made this recipe as is except used brown lentils and 1 chicken bullion cube (what I had). So easy. 1 pot meal. Only took about 45 minutes to cook. Would double or triple the recipe in the future and would try freezing. Made on a snow day. Really great. Next time, if use chicken bullion, don't need the salt.
I've made this a few times, and it's always a hit. Someone unhappiy pointed out that this is a "very basic lentil soup," but that is part of what makes this recipe so wonderful! I have made a few little modifications. I use vidalia onion as my "mild onion", and I put in a little extra. I also add in 1 finely chopped shallot. To make the soup thicker, I use a little extra potato. I also blend it with an immersion blender, which makes clean-up easier and makes the soup very smooth and beautiful. Serve with ciabatta bread for dipping... mmmmmmmm..... This soup is very simple, inexpensive, and impossibly easy to make... and the end result is DELICIOUS! If you want to eat healthy, this is the way to do it.
