    Great recipe! Easy, and not as time consuming as it makes it out to seem. I added ground turkey since we enjoy meat in all our meals. My 1 year absolutely loved it!

    This went into my regular rotation. I prefer more lentils so I added in 50% more and it was perfect for me.

    This was quick, easy, and delish. I’ve made this soup twice First time I substituted veg broth for beef broth, second time I used chicken broth. Both were great. Also used spinach instead of collards bc that’s what I had in the fridge

    Easy, and so good! I added some quinoa and used chicken stock. This came together nicely and would lend itself to lots of other spice profiles; I will def make it again.

    Made this tonight and it was perfect! We did use baby kale instead of the collard greens since I had the kale. We used coconut oil instead of olive oil.

    We loved this!!! We substituted rainbow chard for the collard greens, added a diced bell pepper and added 15 oz. more diced tomatoes. When it was done we each had seconds and were glad there were still some leftovers for the next day.

    This was absolutely amazing! Great flavor! I added more broth and used kale instead of collards because that was all I had, next time I’ll use collards Also sautéed Beyond Burger hot sausage links I sautéed those and added it to the pot. Definitely my favorite lentil soup ever. I tasted before adding the sausage and it was still amazing I felt like it needed more substance and hardiness for my husband and son

    It was packed with flavor and full of different textures. The Parmesan cheese on top really tied it together. There was a huge amount of leftovers, so I have a couple of servings in the freezer right now, too. I'm always searching for ways to get vegetables in our diet during the winter, and this was a great way to do that.

    We loved this. I actually did it in the instapot under pressure for 9 minutes, then just stirred in spinach (and added parsley). Shredded grana padana on top.
