I added more carrots and about 1/2 cup of chopped celery. I also used cherry tomatoes ...cut in half. It was very good, although I didn't use the thyme as that is not one of our favorites. It took about 1 1/2 hours but I also made quick brown bread in the middle of the project. Some of the lentils were still a little tough, so perhaps it could have cooked longer before I added the vegetables.
As previously reviewed this is a very nice recipe. A good soup recipe to throw together on a cold northeast night. I did not have fresh tomatoes on hand so I used a can 14.5 oz of diced tomatoes, which I drained. Again a very nice, tasty recipe.
This was so easy to make and had great flavor
