Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

I don't soak the lentils, no need. Also this is far to high in Sodium. Needs to be made with low salt broth
I agree with StacieMoon about the sodium. Use a low sodium vegetable broth to bring down the sodium by a lot. I would soak the lentils to break down some of the sugars that are indigestible, then cook in a slow cooker for 2 hours to start and keep checking on it until it was thoroughly cooked.
Good soup! Used no sodium fire roasted tomatoes and vegetable broth though!
How could there possibly be so much sodium in one serving? Surely commercial broth is not that high in sodium. I always make my own stock with no salt. So easy to do.
Use low sodium broth. I use my slow cooker 7 cooked it on low after I cooked the beans. came out really good. Hubby loved it.
Thanks for all the suggestions to reduce the sodium, they were very helpful along with additional vegetables and spice. This was delightful. Thanks!
This is a great recipe. I followed advise and used less sodium.
Hearty, easy, and easy to make your own substitutions. I didn't soak the lentils, I microwaved them in water for 2 minutes and poured that in. They were cooked perfectly (I have heard to hold off on adding salt when lentils are cooking or they won't get soft). I'll be making this again!
Higher salt content
I was looking at the Nutritional Information. You might want to change the serving size from 1 to 4 since it states at the bottom of the recipe that it serves 4. That would decrease total calories and carbs. It will also lower the sodium level.
I plan to make this soon.
I am preparing veggies for my 2nd time making this soup. I use unsalted chicken broth. I use no salt diced tomatoes. I added a can of no salt added tomato and chile Rotel. I added a summer zucchini squash, mushrooms (crimini or white), red bell pepper. Either red wine or balsamic vinegar works.
First recipe with lentils in that I have liked. I reduced the sodium as most soups seem to have too much and it was pretty good
The calories and number of servings given here is incorrect. The recipe calls for 1 cup of dried lentils but only a quarter of cup was entered into the calculations.
Not our favorite, a bit too salty... but still very good!
Please note that the nutrition data is highly inaccurate for this recipe. They have used the data for 1 cup COOKED lentils instead of for the 3 cups that would result from starting with the 1 cup dried that is listed in the ingredients. It should be 341 calories per serving.
Mighty tasty - another "keeper" for our menu rotation. No veg broth on hand, used low-sodium chicken broth instead. I DID soak the lentils so they wouldn't turn to mush on me as they sometimes do - cooking @ 7,000 feet requires some timing adjustments. I used 3 Tbls Balsamic, one too many.
Use of low sodium veggie broth...
This is the way I make lentils soup except I use a nice hunk of left over ham, low sodium beef broth and tomatoes (diced and seasoned) and no soaking as they cook in less then an hour. then soups on.
The nutrition in this is way off, 77 calories from canned vegetable soup??? That is probably where all the sodium is coming from. Also it says 1 serving, but the break down looks like 4, other then that it is a tasty soup good on a cold day and easy to make up.
I really enjoyed this! I used mushrooms instead of tomatoes and Italian seasoning instead of the bay leaf. The vinegar added a perfect flavor, so much so that I think I will use water instead of broth next time to decrease the sodium. All in all it was a delicious and satisfying meal- guilt free!
The number of servings is incorrect, and some of the ingredients were entered with the wrong quantities, therefore, the nutritional information is incorrect as well. I got 8 servings of 1 cup each out of this recipe (the recipe calculates at only 1 serving), which is 88 calories...yay!
I have a question. At the top of the recipe and in the nutrition information, it says that this recipe makes 1 serving. At the bottom of the recipe instructions, it says it makes 4. Which is correct? And if it makes 4 servings instead of 1, wouldn't the nutrition information be incorrect?
Put all the ingredients (except salt & vinegar) into a crock pot- 5-6 hrs on high or 10-12 hrs on low. No need to soak lentils if you use crockpot. DO NOT add salt while the lentils are cooking, will make them tough. Add vinegar & salt after soup is done. (can also use apple cider vinegar)
