  1. Overall we enjoyed it. I followed the recipe to a "T" (except for leaving the skin on the potato for extra nutrients) but the lentils were still only semi-cooked. I left the soup to simmer on low for an extra 35 minutes in addition to the 45 minutes. The consistency was wonderful while not being - Read more ...
  2. Good
  3. Honestly I didn't realize that Curried Lentil soup and Lentil Curry soup were two different things so I was a bit disappointed in the taste. Followed other's suggestions not to puree used carrots instead of broccoli and cooked orzo instead of cooked rice just because of what was in my pantry. For me needed more - Read more ...
  4. I used this recipe as a base so that I could add whatever I had in my kitchen to it. I didn't use a blender to puree the vegies and used leftover cooked brown rice and lentils. I also added a sprouted bean trio mix. Great taste and great basic ingredients. Thanks for the recipe.

  8. This was a good soup even better the next day! I used a sweet potato (instead of a baking potato) and added it to the pot before the other ingredients cooked for about 7 minutes. I was unsure when to add the broth so I added some during blending and the rest afterward.
  9. i made several alterations to this recipe: - added meat of approx. 6 chicken drumsticks - added a teaspoon of chile oil to give it some kick - took out potato and used brown rice instead of white - i didn't use a blender just put it all in a pot! it was a great - Read more ...
