Great soup! I ended up using fish (mussel) broth I had frozen in the freezer which turned out great. Next time I would cut the amount of cinnamon in half (I found it overpowered the other flavours) and add an extra half teaspoon of either the curry or cumin. Will make again for sure but might add some carrots and celery for a more complete meal.
Best curried lentil soup I've made After making it according to the recipe I found it needed some veg so followed the track of the reviewer who added diced sweet potato. Chard and Kale were outrageously expensive this time of year so added some frozen spinach although the heft in kale or chard would have been better. Used some chickpeas and only a cup of lentils. Didn't have the red so used French greens. Used less broth than called for. Also didn't have a jalapeno but the curry powder I used was hot enough. Pros: Great base; healthy; inexpensive Cons: Needed something
This recipe is excellent!! I made this during a lunch break it was that easy - some chopping but worth it. I didn't use the mango chutney & bought Italian Parsely by mistake. I think Cilantro would be better. Hearty warming thick soup with just a bit of kick to it. Sending this one to the list of cooks I know. Pros: easy high in flavor not too hot Cons: none
I love this soup! I had all the ingrediants and follow the recipe to the end and the result was just delicious. Couple of comments: the soup was a little bit on the spicy side (perhaps because I used my home fresh garden jalapenos) Next time I will try to use 1/2 jalapeno and there is no need to add salt at the end.
We love this recipe! This plus the quick tikka masala are two of our favorite eating well dishes ever. We don't add the mango chutney because it is delicious without it! It is one of the few recipes that we do not change modify or add more of something.
Flavor & Scent Explosion!! Yummmmm....The only changes I made were using fewer lentils (didn't have enough on hand...had a little less than a cup) using regular and not red lentils (already had regular ones in my cupboard) and no mango chutney (I would love to try it the next time....couldn't find it on my shopping trip this time). So easy to prepare...very little chopping required.This is fantastic!!! Amazing flavor and scent combination! Will absolutely be making this again and again!!! Pros: Flavor Scent Easy-to-prepare Healthy
We LOVE this soup. It is easy to make -- quite fast -- and still delicious even if you don't have all the ingredients (like chutney or parsely or cilantro) on hand. I'd bet we've made this at least 10 times in the last year. Christina Bozeman MT
Finally my husband complimented my cooking!! It's not often that my husband tells me that I made something delicious. This recipe was VERY flavorful & easy to make. The red lentils get soft/mushy very quickly so everything was done in less than an hour. The recipe filled our house with flavor - my husband said it smelled like an indian restaurant when he walked in the house. I'll definitely make this one again! Pros: Very easy & had most ingredients in house
This was a great recipe to play with. I couldn't find red lentils but regular brown ones worked just fine and they were so cheap! I also added some garam masala replaced the jalepeno with a small serrano a spoonful of coconut milk and a cubed butternut squash. YUM!!
