    Just what you need for a cold night! Warm, hearty. One change - I did not put it in the blender - I kept it as a chunky stew. Fabulous! Made the work easier too. I made it a week ago and we are still eating the leftovers. And I don't eat leftovers - so that should say something!  -  19 Nov 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This was absolutely delicous! It was comfot food and I felt so good about eating it, knowing how healthy it was! I substituted corn oil, 1 large onion, 2 real tomatoes diced, chicken stock, cooking wine, 1/4 bunch of cilantro. I also omitted the parsnip because they dont have them at the supermarket. Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter and it came out so great. I served half as a soup (using most of the liquid). And the next day I served it with brown rice like rice-and-beans. Any vegetarian will be like "yumskers!"  -  10 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Excellent soup for those chilly nights. This soup has a wonderful flavor and is easy to make. My only change was that I increased the amounts of vegetable stock, wine, and Worcestershire as the lentils soaked up a lot of the broth.  -  28 Oct 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
