best lentil soup ever

Very good. Seemed like a lot of water but it all absorbed into the lentils to make a thick plate of goodness. A good crusty bread would go well with this. I used spicy italian sausage.

Excellent recipe I really enjoyed it, my sister loved it too.

I didn't like the sweetness of the Italian sausage too much, although it turned out pretty good, next time I will use smoked or Louisiana sausage instead.

Nice recipe. I didn't use sausage, instead I added six Franks cut into slices at the end. I didn't have stewed tomatoes at hand and added a can of diced tomatoes with green chili, which gave everything just the right amount of heat.

I had never made lentil soup before, and my husband had never had a lentil soup he liked. But this version, with the Italian sausage, is a delight. We finished off the entire pot in 3 days...even better reheated!

Made it and love it, I actually liked the kale in it. I'm not a vegetable eater but, this changed my ways and it's great to eat in the winter.

I didn't have a red potato so substitued a sweet potato. I have done this before in similar soups to good effect. It also adds some nice color. I used turkey broth as I have a great deal of that left from the broth I made from the Thanksgiving turkey. Again I don't think it makes much difference from chicken broth. A very satisfying hearty soup.

It was very good. I substituted fat free chicken broth and left out the potatoes and added more 1/2lb more sausage. Used same cook time.

I loved this recipe. Fast and easy to make. I was skeptical of the sausage, but it gave great flavor. I substitute Leek for the onion.....it gave great flavor and milder tone than onion. I also left out the potato to make it low carb

Excellent dish! I love thick soups that are really filling, and this soup fits the bill. I wasn't sure about the greens part of it at first, but it tastes good and adds more nutrition... double win.
