    Mushroom heaven. This is a great light mushroom soup. I used about half a 19 ounce can of lentils ( had no dry) and tossed them in about halfway through the cooking. I used one large Portabella and the rest were large button mushrooms and fresh rosemary instead of dry. I used beef broth and just a splash of red cooking wine LOL Very tasty soup Thanks for posting Made for My 3 chefs fall 2008

    I did everything the recipe said and it came out wonderful! It's easy, it doesn't take too much time, and it's very filling. Good for vegetarians, as it has lentils and mushrooms. By the way, rosemary and bay leaf did a great job, though mine rosemary wasn't so fresh. Overall, it's just an excellent recipe!<br/><br/>P.S. it was very delicious!

    We made this tonight, and it was excellent. We doubled the recipe, added a bit of garlic, and used vegetarian beef flavored Better Than Bouillon to make the broth. It is great with some crusty bread. We used a mixture of shitake and portabella mushrooms.

    Delicious! Based on what I had in the house (and a couple of family members dislike of cooked carrot) I used sweet potatoes instead of carrots, mixed/Italian herbs instead of rosemary, bacon bits. Tinned, cooked green lentils. No bay leaf. A firm favourite now

    The flavor is amazing. This soup should be on a restaurant menu.

    The first time I didn't have any Rosemary so I used salt instead. The 2nd time I added celery. Totally changed the flavor and not in a good way. Next time I'm going to make it with Rosemary.

    This is a great recipe overall. I wanted to accent the earthy elements of the lentils and mushrooms so I added 2 Tbsp of prepared stone ground horseradish mustard. It added just a little savory punch.

<p>I love food.com!&nbsp; It is so fascinating to sample the many recipes that people from all over the world submit.&nbsp; It is a happy place to spend some time. Making Italian food(especially lasagna) and all sorts of salads are a few of the things I enjoy making. Salmon is one of my favorites and I have collected a lot of new recipes to try on food.com. It has been fun to make a collection of different catergories of foods to try. I have a gluten sensitivity and enjoy trying new recipes that are gluten-free. I don't really have a favorite cookbook, but I do love collecting recipes of all different kinds. Dabbling in the art of making raw foods is a new area I have been experimenting in. I am thankful to have found this site under the original name of RecipeZaar.&nbsp; It helps me to be a better chef when I am able to borrow other recipes from my fellow friends on the Zaar. It is also a lot of fun to meet people from all over the world who are such great cooks! It is my goal to be a healthy individual and I have found many new recipes that help me on here. I also desire to honor the Lord Jesus, sharing his love with others. We have 8 children. I now home school 2 children. Six of our children have already graduated from our home school. Three of our children have graduated from college. We all enjoy cooking and/ or eating. Keep the great ideas and recipes coming!</p>
