"I wanted to make lentils on a cold winter's day, so I combined two recipes to create this one. Lentils are great tasting and so good for you. I hope your family enjoys this as much as mine does!"

"Really good soup! Had to put a lot more veggie broth to get the desired consistency! I also used fresh vegetables instead of frozen and I threw in some spinach to add a little green to the soup! All in all really good (this is coming from a non-vegetarian) and a pretty good source of protein!"
"Oh how we love lentils! YUM! This recipe is fantastic. We halved the recipe (which was a perfect amount for our crockpot). We also added a little extra liquid as it didn't completely cover the lentils and vegetables. I sauteed a carrot along with the onion, celery, and garlic and for frozen veggies used broccoli, peas, and spinach. We also didn't think this was much of a soup as it was very thick so we served it over rice. DELICIOUS!!!"
"As other reviewers have noted, there is not enough liquid in the recipe. I fixed this by adding 1 cup of water and 1 cup of white wine to it. It turned out to be phenomenal! Also, I used a small bag of frozen pearl onions in lieu of the regular onion. Try it, you'll like it! :^)"
"Loved this soup. I halved the recipe, but kept the full 4 cups of liquid. It is still a thick hearty soup. I added chopped red bell peppers too. Very good!"
