    it came out really good. i had to add more salt than the recipe called for, and cut the tumeric down to 1/2 tsp. I also added some chipotle peppers to give it some heat, celery, potatoes, and mushrooms. I'd recommend smaller cuts for the veggies.

    Turned out great! I didn’t have vegetable broth so I used broth from a roasted chicken. I used curly kale from my container garden. Paired with cornbread muffins. Yum!!

    pleased the 1 year old and 6 year old. if you want a rich, thick stew, skip the cup of water. I followed the recipe, but it looked too thin. I added an extra cup of lentils and it was still not as thick as pictured. very delicious and easy to modify to tour tastes. ill be adding mushrooms and some heat next time!

    Very good. I would recommend celery be added (I didn’t do the kale because of personal preference). Will definitely make again!

    Not bad but I needed to add cayenne to make it more to my liking. Also made it on stovetop instead of slow cooker so added a bit more water.

    I really enjoyed making this. I use a whole box of vegetable broth and an jalapeño. Sauté some mushrooms, add that and add spinach and shredded carrots at the very end. I also cook it on the stovetop since it takes lentils about 20/30 min to cook.

    Cooking the lentils in the slow cooker with the rest of the ingredients gave it a weird taste. We even doubled most of the spices, and we still got a weird flavor. We probably will not be doing it again, or at the very least subbing lentils with chickpeas.

    Yum! Very easy to make and a big flavor profile. It’s more of a stew than soup so I may serve over rice.

    Hooooooly this is delicious! I made this on a snow day and it was perfect! I added a bit more of the seasonings than the recipe called for, and I did serve it on top of rice because it does create a very thick consistency. I will absolutely make this again and I plan on doubling it!

    This was so yummy and super easy! We put it over rice because it has a thicker, stew-like consistency and it was the perfect winter time dinner. Highly recommend!
