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!
Nelson 17 Oct

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
we didn't have a blender to do the puree step. still turned out great
Margaret 3 Oct
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
It was tasty especially lightly blending half the soup gives me the texture I like.

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!

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 ❣️

This recipe was wonderful. I added turkey sausage and farro to it to make it a little more hearty. This will be a staple recipe from here on out!
Tanya Karas Chumak 22 Jan
It was amazing! I didn’t have canned tomatoes so used cherry tomatoes I had that were a little over ripe and I also added leftover roasted cauliflower and stuffed squash with chickpeas and quinoa. So delicious will try again,
