"Very good! I've never cooked with lentils before. I took the advice of other reviewers and only used half of the Dijon Mustard and am happy with the results. For my tastes the full amount would have been overpowering. You can always add more of an ingredient but you can't take it out! I often order curry lentil soup at my favorite middle eastern restaurant which is served with a lemon wedge to help brighten the taste of the soup. I think the mustard is included in this recipe for the same reason. The next time I make this I will omit the mustard until I have tried it with lemon."

"I have made this soup since the recipe was printed. It is a favorite and I make it all winter. I do add more lentils because I love them and they are so healthy for you. I always double the batch and freeze it for lunches."

"Very good and very easy. I didn't have lentils so use a sprouted bean trio and it worked just as well. Next time I might reduce the amount of mustard as it was almost overpowering the other flavours."
