    I did substitute a couple of the items due to not having them on hand but used the main ingredients. It was delicious and addicting! Loved it.

    It was delicious I did add leftover ham to the soup which made it heartier and maybe more flavorable

    Easy, quick and delicious I let it simmer about an extra 15 minutes to get the lentils a little softer

    Quick, easy & delicious! Hearty, healthy & filling. Perfect with a warm, buttered sourdough baguette. I'll make this recipe again.

    It’s really yummy, I used water instead of broth, used fresh cherry tomatoes ( kinda smashed them a little bit to get the juice), but it still turns out very tasty

    I didn't have plum tomatoes so I used canned dice tomatoes, overall it came really good and it also impressed the wife!

    Really really good. I didn’t have spinach on hand, so I added some green cabbage. I’ll add spinach next time. Perfect cool weather soup 👍🏼

    The lentil soup was amazing. I had no cooking sherry and substituted Caesar dressing and I’ll triple the recipe when I make this delicious lentil soup next week!

    I modified it by adding a link of broiled kielbasa at the start of the simmering process. This was a very satisfying meal. Very easy too!

    Very good. I substituted dried thyme since I didn't have fresh. I used my immersion blender to make it a little creamier.

    Wonderful! Tastes much more intricate than you'd think! I put it next to my own invention, as they're very similar!
