"This recipe is from *Stroganov to Strudel* (Great Traditional Cooking From Germany, Austria, Hungary & the Czech Republic). Per the intro, "Soups are a favourite in this area, served either as a main meal or a starter. Hearty soups range from creamy Czech soups w/light dumplings, to the famous fruit soups of Hungary & chunky soups of Germany, such as *Lentil Soup* containing sliced frankfurter." If your kids are not entirely opposed to veggie-based soups, then the sight of frankfurter slices may well tempt them to happily eat this healthy soup as a 1-dish meal. (Nearly all the time given is cook time, but I also allowed 15 min for ingredient prep). *Enjoy* !"

"This is very simple to make and tastes excellent over spaetzle (German noodles). I didn't have any leeks, so simply left this out. And I used chicken broth instead of water (a bit less so it was thicker on the spaetzle). This was almost exactly like the one my mother (who is 100% German) always made. Thanks!"
"Loved this, although I lacked some ingredients. Also added a handful of potato cubes for substance and a dash of white vinegar at the end."
"My husband loved this. I thought it was way too runny and thin. If we make it again, I'll thicken the broth."
"I loved it; husband didn't. I'm still giving it 5 stars. I didn't use bacon or leeks.....just regular onion and vegetarian hotdogs. ZWT6"
"We really liked this soup - it was lovely and substantial for a coldish summer day. Served with fresh baked bread rolls. I used chicken stock instead of water for a bit more flavour. Thank you! Made for ZWT6 Ya Ya Cookerhood."
"This is a comforting soup for a cold winters eve. I used cubed ham for the lean bacon and left off the leek. No other substitutions were made. Like I said, nice and comforting. Served this with sourdough rolls."
