My boyfriend went on a lentil soup diet which he got on the internet as well but his came out more like a chili texture and was really lumpy...we then tried this one and it was amazing you can really taste all the different flavors and the aroma is spectacular i dont know what the other ppl are saying!!

My last roommate introduced me to a lot of great recipes, this was one of my absolute favorites. We both loved it everytime she made it. The best is to serve it over some whole wheat cous-cous. I just made it for the first time myself last night and I never realized how easy it was. My boyfriend who had never had lentils before and likes meat with every meal ended up really liking it, too.

I found this receipe and asked my granddaughter to make it for us, it is outstanding. The flavors are wonderful to the palate. The surprising ingredient was mint but it added so much to the flavor. Thanks for a great receipe

This is so good and I am not a vegetarian. I added extra broth but it is just my personal reference. It is good as it is.
