I have made this recipe many, many times with multiple variations to it. My family enjoys the recipe, including my toddler son. I occasionally leave out the bay leaf because I may not have it, and I don't add the vinegar. We also like to add cheese, and I have added meat also.

I just made this recipe for the first time today and it is wonderful! Very tasty and the lentils hold their integrity. I have been searching for the perfect lentil soup recipe and finally found it. I love the little touch of vinegar to add a little zing to the soup.

I found this recipe about a month ago and make it now every week to have on hand for lunch, dinner or a snack. So healthy and delicious. I love it as is, but have also added lean ground turkey meat and it's delicious. No need to add salt or broth, the flavors melt in your mouth!

This is my favorite of all recipes for lentil soup (and I've tried many)! I add 170g frozen spinach (which is more than what's called for... gotta get my greens in)!! Delicious!!

Oh my goodness. This is the best lentil soup recipe that makes loads of soup and the leftovers freeze really well. Love it!

This is my go to recipe! I have made it so many times and my family loves this. We make it with veggie broth in lieu of the water and sometimes add leeks to it as well. It is a very easy dish to "add" too. We like it with diced tomatoes. Just make it and enjoy!!
