About this recipe: This lentil soup is full of flavour and is guaranteed to keep you warm throughout the winter. Lentils are simmered with onion and seasonings in a beef stock. It's simple and requires very little prep.
Very simple, hearty and delicious. I used green lentils and instead of Italian herbs I used cumin and turmeric to give it a bit of Moroccan feel. It requires really minimal work and tastes great. - 01 Oct 2013

I am giving this a 5 star rating, with the following modifications: added 3 cloves minced garlic to the oil and onions while they cooked; used 2 cans beef broth (14oz. each) and 1 cup water; used the entire 8oz. can of tomato sauce; added about a cup of sliced baby carrots. Also, I did not add the tomato sauce or the Italian seasoning until the lentils were thoroughly cooked...oftentimes lentils do not cook completely when a tomato product is used at the start. And I personally did not add any salt or pepper. Really good, hearty and healthy soup! - 22 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
