Vegetarian Winter Lentil Soup

Vegetarian Winter Lentil Soup created by Outta Here

The original version of this lentil soup comes from a recent issue of Real Simple Magazine. I made some changes to enhance the taste of the soup.

    Great soup. I sustituted winter squash as I was out of sweet potatoes. For myself, I will chop the kale a little finer next time. I also left out the salt because of the broth. Will make again very soon!

    OH MY!!!! How good! I am not a big (well, I AM big :)) vegie eater, but this made a convert of me! I made it exactly as written. So quick and easy. I may try some curry powder in it next time, for variety! Thanks, Bill! (Sorry it took so long to finally make it-I was going to make it for the last PAC, but it was too warm here!) P.S. DON'T skip the basil! It really added to the flavor!

    I made this soup twice, once exactly as written, and once substituting what i had on hand(marjoram & oregano) for some of the spices. It's so EASY and delicious! My family LOVED it! Even friends I gave a jar to loved it and everbody asked for the recipe. I told them where to look on RecipeZaar and they are enjoying the site too. :-) Thanks for a great and EASY recipe!
