    This was a good, simple soup. I cooked the onions with the spices then added the garlic, vegetables, tomatoes, water, and lentils and cooked it all for about an hour. The only things I added were some chopped celery and a bay leaf. I'll definitely make this again as it is cheap, yummy, and healthy!

    Very tasty soup. I used fresh tasty tomatoes for mine and it was just lovely (So smaller tomatoes instead of burger tomatoes). I read the reviews and some people said it needs broth but my soup was very flavorful and it intensified after sitting for a day or so in my fridge. The only thing I would change is the heat of my soup. I had a dried chili (I think) and the soup might have been better if I added more. Warning tough after eating this soup you will get the worst gas possibly imagined.

    I am so annoyed that I made this after dinner because I would have loved to have a whole bowl now! I had a couple of spoonfuls and loved it. I can just tell this is one of those recipes that is going to taste even better the next day too!! I will be using this recipe a lot :) I added stock to the tender lentils before adding the tomatoes. I also had no fresh chillies so I used a tsp of chilli flakes instead and the heat was perfect. Thanks so much Tish!

    This was really good. I used fresh tomatoes. It seemed like something was missing though. I added more spice and some cayenne but I never figured out what was missing. I would make this again though especially on a cold winter day. Overall it was really good
