A rich and super-hearty lentil soup. Lentils and vegetables are simmered together in a seasoned tomato soup base. It's perfect for the cold winter months. Serve with a side of garlic bread, if desired.
very good soup recipe , will be using again! Hubby and I loved it and young kids liked it too. Great combination of flavours with depth from tomato and lentil base. - 04 May 2013
i didnt have the leek or parsnip so i just used a carrot, celery, potato and the tomatoes. i also used chicken broth instead of veggie and marsala wine instead of red. great flavor. i actually prefer my lentil soup really thick! that way i can scoop it up with crackers! oh and add hot sauce on top.. MMM!! - 31 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
It was very good and plentiful. I certainly ended up with more than 2-3 servings. Also, the lentils absorbed a lot of the liquid, making it more of a stew than a soup. Next time, I will use only 1/2 cup of lentils to see if that will make it more like soup. All in all, a good, cheap and hearty recipe. Definitely a keeper! - 04 Jan 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
