“Couldn't find a lentil soup recipe that didn't have something in it that I didn't like or it had a lot of spicy things had meat in it which I was trying to not use in a lentil soup. I played around in the kitchen with these ingredients and really liked what I come up with. It's got a lot of things other recipes have in them but yet it's different than all I searched on this site or other sites I searched. So I hope you enjoy it as well. I believe corn bread would be really good with this.”
