This soup surprised me! We enjoyed it. I think I had only tried lentils once before. It tasted a lot like the Split Pea with Ham soup. They are high in fiber, folks, so the next time you need a little boost in that direction, try lentils! I bought the lentils at Sprouts and got the pretty greenish blue kind suggested in the recipe. Also, I had some vegetable broth leftover from last week so I used that in place of some of the water. Next time I will skip the sundried tomatoes as a garnish - I'm counting calories and didn't feel like it added much to the taste. Great with cornbread, delicious a day later!
