From Kitchen Parade. 1 point per cup. Made this with small red lentils and only cooked for about an hour. Delicious!

- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried thyme, crumbled
- 2 bay leaves
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 2 tablespoons ketchup
- 5 cups water
- 3 (14 ounce) cans chicken broth

- 16 ounces dry green lentils, rinsed and picked over (about 3 cups)

This was super! I added just a little more garlic and put half in the blender so that the soup would be thicker.
I was looking for a new flavor for lentil and this did the trick. Our family loves curry, so when I saw that as an ingredient, I had to try it. It is a wonderful flavor. LOVED it. I also added a chicken bouillon cube to bump up the flavor a bit. The sherry was terrific, I was hesitant but very good! I also reduced the water by 2 cups, because I made mine in a steamer pot/crock. We liked the soup thicker and with lots of lentils. I also fried up some turkey meatballs and added it in before serving. SO good
This was pretty good. Way too many lentils, I think half the amount would be better. I added some kale and a bouillon cube along with extra amounts of the spices, it needed more flavor. Good base recipe though and the curry, cumin and sherry blended nicely.
