    Best lentil soup ever!!!! I followed the recipe almost exactly and it was just the right amount of everything :) Only difference is I didn’t use frozen ingredients but rather canned. Highly recommend it!

    Subbed out some chili powder for the cumin because I was out, but this was delicious! Enough for me to eat the rest of the week as well. Definitely making this one again

    This turned out really good. I only put in 3 cloves of garlic and 1/2 tsp of cumin.

    I was amazed at how good this recipe turned out! I added spinach and celery on top of the original recipe at the end. I also blended 2 cups, but next time I'll probably blend 3 cups for a thicker stew.

    Delicious! Made as directed, but added more least three cups. Because they were fresh and I didn't want to cook them separately, I added them after I pureed the two cups, and then cooked them long enough to make them tender. My veggies were: fresh corn, fresh green beans, peas, and Latino Kale. Definitely would make again. Loved the smoked paprika in it.

    Great soup! I used regular paprika but added liquid hickory smoke to the onions while cooking, and a bit while simmering. Used frozen green beans, zucchini & red pepper medley for my vegetables. I don’t know how, but the soup tastes a bit cheesy - and I’m NOT complaining! Will add this to my soup rotation.

    We love this recipe! Absolutely delicious and packed with the good stuff! Few modifications: 1) we are a low sodium family, so i used Zoup low-sodium veggie broth (only 7% of your sodium per serving); and only added 1/2 tsp of salt. 2) We like a little kick in our recipes so i used 1/2 tsp smoked paprika and added 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper. 3) I used corn, peas and green beans as my veggies; and also added a handful of chopped spinach. Served it up with cilantro and sour cream and this soup was gone faster than i could serve it. Winning!
