Use vegetable stock to make this a vegetarian lentil soup.
Excellent - because this is a basic recipe which you can adjust to your own tastes. You can add parsnips to replace some carrots. I added half a pound of minced turkey to make it more substantial but still low fat. Also since you add the flavourings at end you can experiment and add different herbs to change the taste. - 12 Nov 2012
used turmeric, coriander, chili powder, garam masala and harissa. No leeks. - 18 Jan 2015
I love recipes that just use a few inexpensive ingredients. This is also really tasty, and great to take to work for lunch. I make it a veggie version and jazz it up with chilli flakes. - 04 Jun 2014
