My mother is from Seville, Spain and made this for us growing up. It is great in the winter and when you are sick.

I spent a semester studying in Seville Spain and the woman I lived with made sopa de lentejas almost every week. I wanted to try my hand at a lentil soup and this recipe brought back tops of memories from my days in Spain! A previous reviewer was correct in saying the soup needed a few more hours so that the lentils would get tender and the flavors would mixed. I transfered the soup to a crock pot let it stew for a few hours and it turned out great! Read More

The flavor was really good (better leftover) but the cooking time is off. I think this should be cooked for 3-4 hours because the lentils were really not done after 20minutes. Plus then the flavors could really mix in Read More

Really good recipe and defintely better the next day. The only change I made was to add an additional can of tomato sauce & some Italian seasoning just to give it a bit more flavor. My son is a picky eater and he loved it. My husband wasnt fond of the lentils (there are quite a lot) so when I make it again I would probably do half as many lentils & maybe add some carrots. Thanks for the delicious recipe:) Read More

This stew turned out wonderfully! I used Turkey Kielbasa to make it a little lighter and the sausage flavour was infused throughout. Will definitely make again! Read More

My fiancee is from Spain and though this recipe is quite different then his mom's it still deserves 5 stars. So delicious! I prepare it almost exactly as stated in the recipe except I double the onions out of personal preference. As other reviewers have noted the recipe requires about an hour of simmering in order to get the lentils soft throughout. It's become a regular in our household and though it requires a bit of time to cook it requires very little prep time or babysitting. Read More

This recipe makes a large pot of thick stew. If you don't like lentils don't try it. Keeps well. The sausage really adds a ton of flavor. I did omit the onion (picky eaters). I'll be making this soup again sometime this winter:) Thanks for posting. Read More
