Lentil Soup (truly good and easy - eat your lentils!) created by windy_moon

A wonderful lentil recipe and very, very easy to make. Lentils are one of my favourite pulses. I'm sure this soup will make them one of yours. Freezes beautifully to provide you with dinner later on down the line when time short and you want a meal on the table - fast!

    This is fantastic soup (I'm eating it while I type this). I am sick right now and wanted something a little more substantial to eat after being on a liquid diet all day. I just happened to have a bag of lentils but I had never made anything with lentils before so I wanted a basic recipe to start from. I went with what I had so I cut the celery, used frozen carrots added at the same time as the lentils, two 14 oz cans of vegetable broth, a container of (probably 1.5 cups) tomato soup i had in my fridge instead of the ketchup and canned plum tomatoes. The seasonings were basically the same, I did not have cumin but added paprika and cayenne pepper, and used some old white wine and lemon juice instead of sherry. I know it's annoying when someone writes a review but they changed half of the ingredients but I have faith that the original recipe was better than what I made so it DEFINITELY gets five stars.

    Left out the oil and the sherry, but otherwise made as stated and it's wonderful!

    wonderful soup Loved the blend of spices in it - not too much, just a wonderful rich flavor.

    I adored this soup and thought it was wonderful and very flavoursome. Unfortunately though my husband and kids did not share my enthusiasm so I had to compromise with 4 stars. A great alternative to a traditional lentil soup.

    Very, very nice lentil soup recipe. Thank you for posting this recipe. We made it without the curry only due to personal preference but the soup was terrific and healthful. It does freeze very nicely.
