Ruth's Red Lentil and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Oct. 30, 2010
My family LOVED this soup and gobbled it all up! I didn't have a lot of the ingredients so these are the changes I made: 1/2 stick (more) of butter, dried garlic (didn't have fresh on hand), no allspice or cloves, chicken broth instead of vegetable broth, no kale, cilantro or file powder. I used extra celtic sea salt and added Oregano (on a whim), but followed the basic instructions with what I had. All that to say, if you don't have every ingredient, it's worth making anyway. We are making a double batch of this today it was so good. ** Editing to say that I've made this several more times and it's become a mainstay dish for our family. I prefer it with Kale and we love the added Cilantro at the end. I usually make it with roast or chicken that I've cooked in the crockpot which gives me the broth that I need and some meat to put in as well. Everyone we've had this with has loved it, so it's a great "company" dish as well.
