"I love lentil soups and this turned out to be no different. I adapted this recipe to our taste though. I skipped the soy sauce and V8 juice. I added 1 can diced tomatoes, some black pepper powder, and thyme. Delicious!!"

"I made "this" soup as well. I added more vegetables. Cabbage, parsnips, extra carrots and celery. Spices I added were chili powder and basil, s and p. I couldn't see it turning out very well, being that the only spice was soy sauce. I also added a half a can of green chilis we had in the fridge. We shall see.... I gave it five stars because it taught me how to add brown rice and lentils to a soup without ruining the vegetables."

"This is a nice one-dish meal, full of a complete protein (from the lentils and brown rice together), vegetables, and fiber. I spice it up with a few generous dashes of dried parsley, sage, thyme, rosemary, and garlic powder. The end result is delicious and my kids love it."
