This is a delicious and hearty thick soup. Great for a cool wintery day.
The lentils change from bright orange to a warm yellow when cooked.

Delicious winter Shabbos soup (parshas Toldos)!

Reviewed by AidelK

My daughter brought red lentils home from Israel for me (I missed parshas Toldos, alas.) I decided to try them in this soup for Shabbos. I switched out the veggie broth for chicken broth and tossed in a couple of chopped up turkey sausages (just little ones). The spicing on this recipe is superb! It was hearty and warming on a freezing cold night. The men were especially happy to warm up with it after walking home in the snow.
