Wow, I am so glad I came across this recipe as this soup is absolutely delicious!! I'm sure this is amazing if prepared exactly as written, but couldn't help myself and made a couple of very minor additions. I also made my own Arabic 7 spice with another recipe I found online - great spice combination that I was previously unfamiliar with! Only changes were that I used 2 onions instead of one and cooked them with some minced garlic. I also added 3 carrots which gave it great additional color. Btw...the cardamon in the 7 spice brought out tremendous sweetness from the carrots. I also added a 10oz. box of frozen spinach on a whim - glad I did as it worked perfectly, and made this a 'complete' meal. This is one of my new favorite soups! Thank you so much Little Tomato for posting!!!
Loved this recipe!! One of the best lentil soups I've ever had.
When I finished making this soup, my first thought was that it was the ugliest soup I had ever made. When I tried the soup my first thought was that this soup was one of the best vegetarian soups that I had ever eaten. I made as directed, just reduced the lemon.There are two vegetarians in our house, so I like to have different types of vegetarian recipes. This made a lot but I am sure that it will freeze well. Thanks for sharing!
My search for the perfect lentil soup has ended. After trying a number of other recipes over the years, this is by far the most flavorful, delicious lentil soup I have made. It is also quite healthy which I love. I can not get enough of it. The lemons are not necessary but heighten the flavor. Great job Little Tomato:o)
