    How can this be 117 calories per serving. Here's my calculations: Lentils 15.5 lb (130 per 1/2 cup, 12 servings) = 1560, Onion Soup Mix = 100, Tomato Sauce 140....Total Calories for recipe = 1800 7 servings = 257 calories - 9/24/11

    The calculations are according to Spark People's recipe calculator. I'm not sure you are estimating the right amount of lentils. The recipe only calls for 2 1/2 cups of dry lentils, not 15.5 lbs or 12 half cup servings. It would only be 5 half cups.

  • Good
    I added, black beans and Kidney bean, chopped onion and substituted veg broth for the onion soup. Came out great. - 1/9/09

  • Could this be modified to reduce the sodium? I'm assuming the sodium is in the onion soup mix. - 11/6/08
