Easy Spinach Lentil Soup Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Aug. 8, 2014
I really enjoyed this soup. I took the suggestion to change the ingredients. I substituted fresh chopped kale for the spinach, I left out the potatoes, I used hot salsa and substituted smoked pork neck instead of the bacon. I also did what Gina B. suggested and added cumin and a bay leaf. It turned out terrific. The kale holds up well and has a better flavor, I think, than the spinach. I don't eat potatoes much any more and didn't see the point in adding them. The salsa added some spiciness, and the smoked pork neck gives a lot of flavor with a little bit of meat.

Turned out GREAT! Such a nice change from the standard chili, broccoli cheddar, or baked potato soups. Light and relatively low cal. Will definitely do this again. I did add 2 tbsp. lemon juice as well as 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar to give it a bit of "tang". Thanks for the terrific recipe!

I used lentils for the first time in this recipe. A word of caution...if you use red lentils, reduce the cooking time. Red lentils take the shortest amount of time to cook. My soup came out mushy. Next time maybe 25 minutes with red lentils in it.

I really liked this soup! I thought the bacon/salsa/rosemary combination was new and different and it used up a bag of spinach I needed to finish. I totally took out most of the bacon grease before adding the onions and carrots. That's the only change I made. Thanks for the recipe.
