This is good .. The only thing I added was some salt, and I puréed the soup .. thanks!
Yellow lentils make this soup very creamy and soft textured, especially after I whizzed it slightly with my hand blender. We enjoyed this recipe as a vegetarian soup made without the bacon, and garnished it with a dollop of sour cream and a few dashes of Challula Hot Sauce. Chia, I knew this soup would be as reliably tasty as are your other recipes!
Excellent lentil soup made so sweet by all those carrots. This one's a keeper, chia.
I had a tough time finding yellow lentils; but did find yellow split peas. not sure if that is the same. soup was easy enough to make. It made a large batch for me for the week. I used low sodium broth and the soup didnt lose flavor at all. I made it without the bacon and the flavor was not lacking. I pureed just about all of it when cooled. Very good taste.
I made this soup for lunch today and it was very hearty and warming. The only change I made was to cut down on the amount of bacon and discard the bacon fat before proceeding with the recipe, but other than that I followed the recipe as published. I left the mixture chunky and the blend of spices was dead on. Thank you Chia for sharing the recipe.
