  1. Borrowing suggestions of bay leaves and garlic, I used 1/4 teaspoon of smoked paprika. Subbing home grown butternut squash for potato. Going low and slow for 10 hours as I type. Can’t wait.

    I am trying your recipe tomorrow and I hope it turns out well. I have one issue with your site. The ads make it miserable to find the recipe and directions. It took several minutes for a clear view of your recipe and that seems to be overkill. I can tell you that I can’t even tell you what they were advertising so it was lost on me. Thanks for the opportunity to voice a big problem that occurs with other sites as well. 

  3. Can you freeze this?

  4. My soup is really thick. How can I make it more soupy?

  5. Great recipe! The only thing I would adjust is the length of the cooking time. Like other comments, the lentils take much longer to cook. It’s more like 8-10 hours.

  6. Margaret White says:

    It took FOREVER for the lentils to cook, but it is delicious. 

  7. This looks delicious — do you cook the potatoes first or are you just dicing a raw russet and throwing it in to cook? Thank you@

  8. 4 stars
    I made this and we loved it, will definitely make it again! When it was done, my husband suggested using the emersion  blender to thicken it up a little – it worked great!!

  9. 4 stars
    This recipe was really good. I will definitely make it again!
