Chock-full of veggies, this delicious lentil soup is really simple to fix. In St. Ignatius, Montana, Joy Maynard often doubles the recipe and freezes half for later.

"After reading all of the positive reviews I am not sure what went wrong, even though I followed the recipe as printed. It is definitely a very healthy soup which is why I gave it two stars but my batch was totally lacking in flavor. I did add some salt to see whether that would enhance the taste and it didn't seem to do much good. Not sure what I would change if I were to make it again."

"Simple and tasty. I made it with boxed chopped tomatoes to avoid having to dig the tomato paste out of the can, and loved it!"

"This is one of our favorite vegetarian dishes. I do add about 1 teaspoon of salt and pepper to taste. Also I add more water if it is gets to thick."
