Very good and basic recipe. I will make again but will use a little more carrot and celery. My husband is vegan so I of course used vegetable broth rather than chicken. I also added a pinch of allspice and cumin.

this took MUCH longer than 20 minutes for the lentils to soften. I am making it now, and I am about to go over the 40 minute mark

This was very simple and easy to make. It is very filling and nutritional. I would probably add more spices since I like it on the spicy side and I added some curry powder in as well to give it more of an exotic taste. Definitely a good go to soup that I can make with things I usually have around the house.
