I've been trying out soup mixes to make for Christmas gifts- I made this one tonight and knew I'd found my winner. I used red lentils but instead of the green ones I used split peas. Also I added 2 Tbs. of dried chopped onion. If you don't have poultry seasoning you can make your own (I did) using one tablespoon each of the following: sage marjoram rosemary celery seed and thyme. Thank you so much for this recipe- OUTSTANDING! UPDATE Every time I make this I add 1/3 c. barley and an extra cup of water to make up for the barley.
The soup turned out into an excellent texture in the end. It is wise to simmer it for 30 minutes as the sauce thickens and becomes a soupy texture. It was a bit spicy for my mom (who is usually okay on spices) so I would consider cutting down the pepper to a 1/3 tsp.
Came out very tasty. Didn't have any veggies so this recipe was perfect. I used regular long grain rice (not instant) and threw in a 1/4 cup of pearl barley. Used ham instead of chicken (what I had). Didn't have poultry seasoning so used cajun and a bay leaf instead. We loved it!!
I made this as a present for the Holidays - I ended up doubling the amount of goods within the jar (by adding a second layer of the items) due to the fact I was using quart and not pint jars! Jars are now out of season and I didn't want to go out and search for pint jars. Looks like everyone is getting double the soup this year!
I can't find red lentils anywhere around here! I just used more green lentils in this soup as I was told they all taste the same. I considered using split peas as other reviewers mentioned however wanted to try and stay close to the original recipe. I was worried about using instant rice in this since it only takes 5 minutes to cook and lentils take so much longer. It was fine but I think regular rice would have worked just as well. The flavor was good but I think it would be better with the optional chicken and celery. Overall inexpensive easy good flavor and very pretty gifts in a jar.
Easy to prepare and very tasty! My family even my 2 year old loved this soup. I added dried peas in lieu of one of the lentils and diced some ham instead of chicken. I am going to pre-assemble these for my own pantry makes a great quick meal.
This is YUMMY....HOWEVER...trust me and reduce pepper to 1/4 tsp. as 1/2 makes it too spicy and peppery after it has cooked. Also...reduce chicken bouillon to 1 Tablespoon as it is too salty if you don't. The only thing I added was 1 T. of minced onions and 1-14 oz. can of diced tomatoes. NOW....I will give it as gifts!
