This spicy spinach and red lentil soup is an easy and hearty recipe perfect for cold winter nights. See it being cooked in the Allrecipes Red Lentil Soup Video.
Wonderful soup on a cold night; warming, filling and comforting. I used vegetable stock instead of water to give it a bit more flavour and added an extra 50 ml. as it was turning into a thick stew. Next time I'll be using fresh spinach as the frozen turned soggy while cooking. - 18 Jun 2015
This is an excellent soup: flavorful, colorful and simple. I made very few changes (fresh basil, more water and a tad more of each of the spices). - 26 Jun 2005 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very flexible recipe. I made it the first time as written. I have made it several times now and I have altered it a little. I saute chopped carrot with the onion and use twice as much liquid as recipe calls for. I also use 1/2 broth and 1/2 water, leave out added salt if using canned broth. I puree 1/2 the soup and leave the rest chunky. It's also great with fresh spinach thrown in near the end of cooking. Great flavor from the spices and makes the house smell great when it cooks. - 01 Jan 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
