I agree that it could have used more flavor. I think I would have liked it better with beef. I probably won't make it again; however, my husband loved it.

Winner in our house. This one is going in our book of favorites. My oldest wasn't thrilled with it. He said it was good, just not his type of food. He said you should like it because it is healthy but the lentils were throwing him off. He isn't a soup person in general. The other 3 liked it and one 1 LOVED it. Means another dinner I rocked with a recipe from here.

I usually get annoyed when I see changes to a recipe, but I wanted to try this recipe. I was short on time and I had no choice but to substitute what I had. I love lentils, but I only had the whole small red ones. and I only had a package of 4 bratwurst sausages. And I had no broth. I had to use water, but the rest I did the same. Oh and I cooked it in my pressure cooker (my new best kitchen friend) for a half hour instead. And it was so super good! And looking at the nutritional information, it sure is a healthy dish. Thanks! I will be making this again and again!

This was delicious - my kids even liked it. I doubled the carrots and added a couple of potatoes.

It was good but not great, the lentils could have used more cooking time. I would need to double the sausage next time.

I thought it was a bit bland.

This is a great recipe. My husband and I loved it. We had it for New Year's Day dinner. Then we ate the leftovers later in the week and it was even better.

It was good, but I have to admit that I expected a little more flavor based on all the wonderful reviews. It wasn't bad, but it definitely was not my favorite.

Perfect meal for colder weather. It's healthy and hearty at the same time, and super quick to throw in the crock pot.
