    Reviewed Garlic Lentil Soup

    "A very simple but tasty lentil soup. From my experience with red lentils, I knew I wouldn't want to cook them for over an hour (too mushy!). So I sauteed the carrots, onion, and garlic first before adding in the other ingredients. I only cooked the soup for about 20 minutes after that. I also only added 1 tablespoon of red wine vinegar and that se..."

    "This is a delicious soup! I did make a few changes, including:
    1 large onion instad of 2
    Double the amount of dired herbs
    Added fresh parsley at the end

    We used shredded parmesan cheese which was a nice final touch on the soup. Definitely better on day 2!"

    "I was very excited to try this recipe, but I have to say I don't like the taste of it at all. I didn't even bother making the couscous since the flavor of the stew is not pleasant and don't think I want to eat this for dinner. I think the Trader Joe's squash soup is to blame here! Once I tried a bit of that on its own, I could tell that was what t..."

    "Honestly, not sure where I went wrong with this one. Actually, I'm thinking that I may not like this combination of ingredients. The final dish seemed way too bitter. Between the canned tomatoes, lemon juice, and sage, the flavor just wasn't all that pleasant. Fresh tomatoes would be an improvement, I'm sure, but don't know that I would try this o..."

    "YUM! This treat is kinda like an updside down rhubarb coffee cake. Individual sized cake-lets mean you will eat more than one! Recipe was easy to follow. Our only substitution was half and half for the cream. The rhubarb topping is perfect. The "sticky bun" is more like a coffee cake in consistency and flavor. BUT IT IS DELICIOUS! :) Fresh rhubarb..."

    "Great recipe! Very tasty lentil salad. I made as directed, including the optional bay leaf with the lentils and the optional feta cheese. Honestly I think the feta really balances it out, and wouldn't recommend that it be left out of the recipe. My only quibble is that you didn't include the cooking steps for the lentils and beets. I know how to d..."

    "This worked really well! I did have to cook longer than 15 minutes, though, to let all the liquid be absorbed. I toasted my quinoa after washing it (per another recipe instructions) and let it cool. Then I cooked as directed in this recipe, but using vegetable stock. Came out really well - thanks for sharing!"

    "Based on other reviews, I made a bunch of changes. I think it's a great base recipe that you can change to suit your needs. That said, I made the following changes:
    - reduced sugar to 1/2 cup
    - added 1 tspn vanilla and extra tablespoon of milk to liquids
    - added 1/2 tspn cinnamon to flour
    - folded in about 1/3 cup of choco chips<br..."

    LinMarie says:

    "This soup is a real mixed bag for me, which is why I gave it three stars. The main con is the consistency. Even with blending, I don't feel like it's a smooth soup - it's a little too grainy for my taste. The flavoring and ease of making it are the major pros. I think I would consider making it without pureeing next time and maybe add some potatoe..."
