Bryan's Spicy Red Lentil Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 7)
Reviewed: Jan. 2, 2006
Very tasty. I recommend blending only half of the lentil mixture, because it is much more stew-like than soup-like. Also, I added chopped fresh basil to keep it fresh-tasting, served it with rice, and flavored with tamari rather than salt and pepper. Try adding 1/2 - 1 teaspoons each of tumeric and coriander for more spice.

This is nice and spicy- a good base recipe to play with as the other reviews mention. I added the juice of half a lemon and fresh spinach just before serving instead of the tomatoes. No need to blend either.

This was a tough one to give 4 stars to. It has plenty of heat, which is fine with me, but my wife couldn't handle it. You might want to cut back on the cayenne pepper to 1/4 teaspoon and think about adding a half can of coconut milk and, perhaps, a diced apple or two. That's how I'll make it next time.

OOOO! This is Goood! Prepared as directed. Nice and spicy. My husband loves it, the children thought it a little too spicy. I've tried three new recipes this week from allrecipes and this is our favorite. Thanks for the recipe. Good job!

This is an excellent soup: flavorful, colorful and simple. I made very few changes (fresh basil, more water and a tad more of each of the spices).
