    This was really good but needed more liquid to be a soup. My DH isn't a fan of soup so I left it that was and we loved it!

    This soup recipe is a good start. To keep it vegan I added one envelop of onion soup mix, 1/4 tsp each of cumin, coriander and turmeric and then 4 big cloves of garlic. It turned out GREAT! love this and will be making it again!

    As healthy as lentils are, and as health conscious as I am, I really wish I enjoyed eating them. I do eat them, but I can't say that I enjoy it. So, needless to say, I was hesitant with this recipe and wondered if there was a chance this recipe would make a lentil lover out of me. I made exactly as directed, with the addition of 1 cup of chopped zucchini and extra cayenne pepper. I cooked it for about 45 minutes, and then used an immersion blender to puree. I tasted it and felt so-so about it, but after another sprinkle of sea salt and further pureeing... voila! Delicious soup, and I've had 2 bowls of it already! Thanks for making me like lentils!

    Hearty, healthy, simple, and delicious. I made it just as it is and found it to be the perfect lunch for a cold snowy day. It heats up perfectly in the microwave, too!

    Sorry. This was not good. Maybe my expectations were too high because I just had a fabulous lentil soup at The Pita Inn. Even adding more salt, garlic as suggested, additional spices, it was still bland and stunk up the entire house. Thanks for posting, but this just was not for me.
