Very good and basic recipe. I will make again but will use a little more carrot and celery. My husband is vegan so I of course used vegetable broth rather than chicken. I also added a pinch of allspice and cumin.
I made this recipe but only had red lentils.I used vegie stock and added a few bay leaves and instead of tomato pastes I had a can of fire roasted diced tomato and blended omatoes in blender just a bit.I took this to church and everyone wanted recipe .they even wanted it for the bulletin.the red lentils make a the difference because I made it again with brown lentils and did not taste near as good.
this took MUCH longer than 20 minutes for the lentils to soften. I am making it now, and I am about to go over the 40 minute mark
This was very simple and easy to make. It is very filling and nutritional. I would probably add more spices since I like it on the spicy side and I added some curry powder in as well to give it more of an exotic taste. Definitely a good go to soup that I can make with things I usually have around the house.
Very hearty soup, but I added a little more carrots to it, and a few diced potatoes. I will definitely make again!
