Lentil, Spinach and Lemon Soup

This is a soup from Syria which is very warm and comforting. The lemon and cumin, added near the end, brighten it.

Hello, I'm the author of this recipe. You need to add about a teaspoon of cumin to the soup towards the end with the lemon juice. The cumin and lemon juice make all the difference in the taste.

merely OK, which is odd because I usually love Syrian food. Seemed like it was definitely missing something, even with the addition of cumin. Was a decent way to use up some old lentils I had laying around but won't be making this one again any time soon.

This is a very good base recipe. You need to add what you like but mine came out great. I added carrots, corriander, cumin, garlic salt and tabasco. This is a perfect post workout meal packed with protein and low in fat.

Wonderful recipe! I added two bay leaves to the boiling water and lentils, making sure to take them out before step 2 I added a cup of vegetable stock after adding the lemon juice and spinach. The cumin and parsley were a great addition and cracked pepper is a must in my diet!! Delicious!

I added more spinach and the recommended cumin. We really enjoyed it. Ours came out less like a soup than like a thick stew, though... and I added in additional water and skipped the step with the flower.

Seemed like it was lacking something. I used some bone broth as part of the liquid; added some pepper and fresh parsley when it still seemed like it needed something more. I think I'll try adding some turkey or some spicy sausage when/if I make this again. At any rate, my baby seemed to like it.

I added carrots and I think it needed more liquid so I used chicken broth and water, about 2 1/2 cups all told. Very good, hearty taste.
