I used about 4 quarts of water. I modified the recipe slightly, changes include 1/2 cup olive oil, 6 potatoes, 16 oz. baby carrots, 3 lbs of lentils, and 12 ounces of mushrooms. The total yield was around 7 1/2 quarts. I am going to be eating this for days! I hope everyone else enjoys as much as I did.

Hearty, satisfying soup. I liked the lentil and plantain combination, but next time I might try it with black beans just to see how that is. My only problem was that the lentils needed to cook a little longer than the rest, but that could be because I didn't soak them long enough or because they were a bit old to begin with.

Add a squeeze of lemon and some paprika when serving.
