Made for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #83 - December 2013 and what a great choice for a cold day. I used red lentils and chicken broth for the water and added a little garlic. Delicious. Definately one I will make again and again. Thank you for posting.

I made this lovely soup tonight for dinner. I actually made it in my Thermomix so adjusted the time slightly. The only other change was I used 3/4 cup of lentils and used vegetable stock instead of water. I really enjoyed it. thanks

This was so good! I used red lentils and subbed chicken broth for the water - also used green peppers instead of red. So so tasty for so little ingredients. Went well with grilled cheese sandwiches. Will definitely be making again.

Delicious soup. I used red lentils and just a grind of black pepper in place of the red pepper. Good taste and texture though I might reduce the amount of water by 1/2 a cup next time, just to make it a little thicker. Made for Aussie / Kiwi Swap March 2011.

I used dried green lentils. They took longer to cook through. I used only 1 tablespoon of olive oil. I like the taste that the red pepper gives to the soup. Next time I'll used low-sodium chicken broth. And probably a bit more liquid cause it's thick like a stew. Thanks Chef Buggsy. Made for Potluck tag

This was very easy to prepare. The salt helped bring the flavor out more. I think I'll use half water and half chicken broth the next time I make this. Thank you for posting. Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2009* game

DH and I really enjoyed this quick and simple to make soup. I used red lentils and cooked them in a heavy cast iron pot. After the first 20 minutes the lentils were cooked through. A little salt was sprinkled over them and a quick to fix and delicious dinner was served. Made for *Aussie Swap* January 2009.

This is so amazing! I doubled the recipe for our big family. Everyone loved it--even the picky kids. This works great with red lentils, too!

A nice basic soup. We found that the lemon juice really made this soup. I had some leftover and after two days the flavours really had a chance to meld and come together. Thanks for the recipe.
