I think this recipe would have been lovely just as written... but as any good home cook does, I tailored it to fit my family's taste. I kept the basic recipe almost the same (doubled) and then added 2 carrots (that I sauteed with the onions), 2 large handfuls of fresh kale (that I also sauteed before adding the liquid), cumin seeds instead of ground cumin (that I roasted in the bottom of the pan that I sauteed in), and some mexican oregano. I also did not have red lentils, so I used the brown lentils we had on hand. I added enough water to keep it a soup but not give it a watered down taste. And I salt and peppered to taste. It was a hit with the whole family!
