I loved this and so did my husband. He never had kale and really enjoyed it in this soup! Another great vegetarian meal!


This was very easy to make, cheap, and absolutely delicious! And I feel good and healthy after eating it.


Loved this recipe! So easy and nutritious! The red bell pepper and green spinach make the soup look as good as it tastes. I used chicken stock instead of the bouillon and omitted the rice. I also added some crushed red pepper to give it a kick. My friends loved it.


Great recipe; my friends loved it. Thank you.


This was very very good. Easy to make. Didn't change a thing. A light tasting soup.


I liked very much the flavor of this lentils soup. It´s very easy to making and the flavor is great. I don´t have spinachs and I added 1/2 cup of vegetables precooked. From today it´s one of my favorite recipes. Thanks


This was very easy to prepare. I thought it was kind of plain to taste and looks, so I added a can of tomato paste and 2 cans of water and it looks and tastes much better. I used red wine vinegar instead of white, too.
