      Simple, healthy and delicious! I halved the recipe (only cooking for myself), used red lentils, hot salsa and added some chopped jalapeno peppers because I wanted a spicier soup. With fresh ground pepper and a few dollops of plain yogurt, it was amazing!

      SO EASY! This is really a nice hearty meal. I diced a small fresh jalapeno with the onions and carrots. This is a keeper. Thanks for sharing Pam-I-Am.

      Easy peasy!! This hearty flavorful soup comes together so fast! I didn't have any carrots on hand so I threw in some leftover corn for color and texture. I shared this soup with my lentil loving friend Nancy and she too gave it three thumbs up!
