    I love lentil soup, but found this recipe a little bland. Any ideas on how to create a bolder flavor?

    Loved this! I used lemon juice instead of the vinegar because I had lentil soup at a restaurant that used lemon and I liked the taste.

    Correction:
    My DH now likes it (w/o cornbread). My DD only likes it with cornbread. smh

    I enjoyed this soup that I served with cornbread (my DH said that it was OK, and my 5 year old didn't like it). I pre-cooked dried lentils instead of using canned (less sodium). I also tripled the recipe for 3 people.

    Just made this for lunch. Also quickly cooked up some dry lentils instead of using canned. Substituted vegetable broth. Added a handful of chopped fresh parsley to my bowl at the end. It was FANTASTIC!

    This soup is AMAZING! I wasn't able to find canned lentils, so I bought dried lentils and pre-cooked them before I put them in the soup. It still only took thirty minutes. I really like the red wine vinegar!

    I loved this soup! It's the healthiest, quickest, and most nutritious soup I have made! Thank you Martha for yet another delicious recipe!

    This was quite tasty. I think the red wine vinegar added a lot to the soup.
