Easy, healthy and good! It’s just what you want on a cold snowy day! My four year old and 13 year old gobbled it up! It pairs well with a salad and fresh bread!

This recipe is sooo good ! Like another reviewer, I substituted more curry powder and less cumin . I also only used 1/2 can of tomatoes . Instead of diced tomatoes , I used fire roasted tomatoes with chilies and skipped the blender portion as the consistency was thick enough !

Delicious and easy to make

Loved this soup! I used baby kale instead of collard greens because it’s what I had handy. Not too fussy of a recipe and it tastes delicious!
Karen M 3 Dec 2018
Delicious and filling! Substituted green onion for white onion, chicken broth for vegetable broth, and spinach for collard greens since that was what I had on hand. Ate it with naan bread. So good!
Stephanie P 29 Nov 2018
So good! Creamy without any dairy in it thanks to that truck if the blender. Very simple and hearty and perfect for a rainy day.
Kris R. 27 Nov 2018

Elizabeth 17 Nov 2018

Emily 6 Nov 2018
Delicious. I added a bit more olive oil than called for and used collard greens came out so so good.
Kateryna Tyn'o 29 Oct 2018
Delicious:)Also planning to try it over rice, should be great.
Mandy 19 Oct 2018
Very yummy! I used red kale instead of collard greens; added some cabbage and no egg noodles with a little extra veggie broth and it came out great! Needed to add extra sea salt and pepper to taste. Also I didn’t blend part of the soup because I like it to be more soupy and less chili like. Used extra curry powder and less cumin. Tastes a bit like minestrone. Paired with easy 1 hour bread recipe I found on Pinterest. 👍👍 Overall, this recipe is awesome because you can tweek it and it still comes out good!

Lentil recipes can be real lame but this one’s got great flavor. I modified based on what I had in stock, using red lentils, tomato sauce + diced tomatoes in lieu of 28oz of tomatoes, and doubled the greens. Turned out delicious, perfect for fall and winter.
Nunez 7 Oct 2018
we didn't have a blender to do the puree step. still turned out great
Margaret 3 Oct 2018
Love this soup! Great flavor and texture. I made a double batch and used home canned stewed tomatoes. Next time I’ll add about one cup less water, just because my tomatoes are more watery.
Tania 2 Oct 2018
It was tasty especially lightly blending half the soup gives me the texture I like.
Will Turner 23 Sep 2018
I had to substitute lemon with lime because I didn’t have one. The outcome was amazing however. It gets more taste as it sits also. Deff will cook this more with colder months upcoming!
Nkanyezi Ntombela 18 Aug 2018
Certainly would make it again.
laurie l. 9 Aug 2018
I’ve made this several times and everybody loves it! Sometimes I use coconut oil instead of Olive.. I’ve also used chicken broth and/or chicken sausage or pancetta. You can tweek the recipe several ways & it still comes out Delicious ❣️
Evelyn Long 1 Aug 2018
Awesome!! I added a couple of diced potatoes.
Jay Shwack 4 Jul 2018
