A spicy red lentil soup with onions, spinach, basil, cumin and cayenne for a bit of a kick, that is delicious, fast and easy to make.
Altered ingredient amounts. This is an excellent soup: flavourful, colourful and simple. I made very few changes (fresh basil, more water and a tad more of each of the spices). - 29 Sep 2008
Something else. Very tasty. I recommend blending only half of the lentil mixture, because it is much more stew-like than soup-like. Also, I added chopped fresh basil to keep it fresh-tasting, served it with rice, and flavoured with tamari rather than salt and pepper. Try adding 1/2 - 1 teaspoons each of tumeric and coriander for more spice. - 29 Sep 2008
Used different ingredients. This is nice and spicy- a good base recipe to play with as the other reviews mention. I added the juice of half a lemon and fresh spinach just before serving instead of the tomatoes. No need to blend either. - 29 Sep 2008
