This hearty, savory soup was born when I threw together a bunch of ingredients I had lying around. It makes a perfect dinner on a rainy or snowy day.

Recipe name should be changed to Paul's Lamb and Lentil Soup and SKIP the apples. When I read the recipe I knew I would not be putting apples in it and that was confirmed by the one review prior to mind. I put a few stalks celery and halved onions in the pot when cooking and removed when I removed the bones. This was delicious. My family loved it and it will be one I will make over and over especially after having a lamb dinner. Read More

Did not enjoy this soup. The flavours of the apple and wine did not blend well with the lamb. Read More
