      Prepare yourself... this soup is amazing. I also add carrots and tomato (both diced) to up the veggie content. Carrots go in with the potatoes and tomatoes go in at the very end (I throw them in about 5 min before serving... Plus I save a bit of fresh cilantro to throw in at the very end as well so it is green and fresh).

      I sauted the onions for a long time until they are pretty much carmelized, and I do not use as much lemon juice as the recipe calls for, but I love this soup! I can't think of anything so healthy that tastes so good! I am a beginner, and this is my favorite. Thank you!!

      I really enjoyed this soup. You must really love cilantro to like this! I loved the mix of flavors with the lentils, spincah, and potatoes. Lots of garlic, lots of cilantro. Thanks Miss Annie!
