    Layanette's Note:

    This was my first endeavor into lentils and it was fabulous, the flavor is wonderful (even though it doesn't seem to have much looking at the ingredients list). I added rice to mine. I revised this from the what would jesus eat cookbook.

      I made this a while ago, pureeing the ingredients at the last minute, and portioned out the leftovers to be frozen. To me, it tasted as good as the day that I first made it!

      This was a very hearty, healthy soup. I made it tonight to serve tomorrow. I doesn't have as much flavor as other lentil soups I've made. I do like what the lime and cilantro do for the flavor. I think I'll top it with fresh tomatoes and a dollop of sour cream. This recipe makes a ton. Since its so filling, I know we'll get many meals out of this batch. Thanks for posting.
