Made this soup for lunch today and it was super yummy! I left out the onion flakes (didn't have any) and added one chopped sweet onion to the cauliflower and carrots used 2 cups of chicken broth so left out the bouillon cube and used a regular can of coconut milk. Was a cold day here today and this not only tasted delicious but warmed us up. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I made this with broccoli and yellow lentils rather than cauliflower and red lentils and used only water because I didn't have vegetable stock. Read More

This soup was very easy to make and delicious! I used vegetable broth instead of water and the broth cube. I also used onion powder instead of flakes. I forgot to mention that I also used spinach instead of kale. Read More

Tasty. Was much better before I added the kale, which just crowded out the other ingredients and dulled the flavor. If you really do add an entire bunch of kale, it becomes kale soup, not lentil soup. Cauliflower was a nice choice to complement the lentils. Read More

Good, mild mix of spices because I like gentle spicy, rather than burning hot. I make it in advance and enjoy it over several days with various toppings. Maybe avocado, maybe grated Parmesan cheese, maybe chicken, shrimp, maybe sun-dried tomato, maybe even drop a raw egg and let it cook on top of the soup. Read More

My husband loved it! He doesn't like hot and spicy dishes, so this was mild for his taste. I put half into another pot and spiced it up with curry and chili paste. YUMM Read More

Hearty and tasty. I'm making it again and adding a few more veggies will see if I like that even better. Read More
