Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Secret Ingredient! I had made something like this a while back, but this recipe takes the cake. I would never think of adding Truvia to this savory soup, but it truly makes it taste yummier! Thanks for the recipe, Truvia!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy and flavorful Really easy to make, although I didn't use canned lentils, used bagged ones. Just had to soak them first. Soup is very flavorful and hearty.
