Like most soups, this Moroccan lentil soup recipe gets better with time as the complex seasonings have time to develop. Make it a day ahead if you can—this easy slow cooker/crock pot recipe variation makes it a cinch to get the soup cooking while you do other things.

I thought the soup was mighty tasty as is. I am from Arizona and now add Jalapeno to most of my soups and casseroles. My Nebraska friends would rather I leave the heat out, though. My guests add the protein of their choice (if any) at the end to keep my vegetarian friends very happy.

Good base soup, needed to deviate from the recipe though.

The recipe is a good base or Lentil soup, but I find that it comes out a bit bland if you follow it to the dot. To combat this, I used chopped Kale instead of Spinach, and Paprika instead of pepper. So much better! It added a little extra flavor, where the broth initially came up short. I also think that you should add the cilantro and lemon while cooking (same time as Spinach / Kale). Introducing those ingredients during cooking gives the soup so much more time to mellow out. Altogether though, I am sure I'll make this again! It came out fabulously.

Smells wonderful,but lacks in taste

I was so happy with the recipe while it was cooking--easy to throw together, smelled wonderful, etc. But unfortunately, it was rather dull in flavor. However, I'd give it a shot again, using the suggestions from others (like skinless chicken thighs). Not sure what vegetarians can do.
