My first time cooking lentils. This recipe is a great starting-off point. We don't buy chicken stock, just use Better than Buillion and adjust the salt. I doubled everything except the onion and added celery, kale and fresh ginger. I had a "curry spice" from Trader Joe's, which had cumin, ginger, nutmeg, onion, garlic and chili - I put about a tsp of that, also. I messed with it, added more water, kept tasting, kept messing with it, and the soup adjusted amazingly. I added a tsp or two of sea salt towards the end, with more spices in a bit of water. This recipe is pretty hard to mess up. The lentils cooked down to pretty much mush by the time it finished absorbing the water (as in, the leftovers), but it's just as amazing regardless.
