Absolutely delicious and very, very easy. A nice change from the typical celery/carrot lentil soups. I used about half of the recommended amount of lentils so that it didn't get too thick, and it came out wonderfully. The tomato paste gave it a wonderfully rich flavor, so if you prefer your soups "brothier," go with less tomato paste. We skipped the sherry and just went with a sprinkling of parmesan and it was perfect. This probably would work well with cannellini if you don't have lentils on hand. Thanks for an excellent recipe!


This is a balanced, hearty soup which will be especially popular on winter nights. I only had 4 cups of broth so mine turned out a little more like stew than soup but is quite tasty anyway. I wouldn't suggest serving this to anyone who doesn't like lentils as the flavor definitely comes through, but the onion and pepper flavors are less pronounced. I might top some of the leftovers with sour cream and a little salt instead of parmesan. Next time I make this I will probably add more mushrooms.


I substituted celery for the green pepper & only added a dash of basil instaed of 4 teaspoons. I used a 32 oz. box of chicken broth & a 14 oz. can. The soup gets pretty thick though so you may want to add more broth, possibly at the end. I did simmer the soup for longer than the recipe said. It tastes good with & without the added sherry.
