This is my new favorite lentil soup. The apricot and cumin give it a very subtle sweet spiciness; just perfect! I made this soup with brown lentils instead of the red ones; also added more broth as it simmered more than 40 minutes waiting for guest...morelipsantos in Curitiba loved it
What a great soup!
Really got me out of my rut, comfortable as it was.
The pairing of apricot and lentils is very nice, the lemon, thyme and cumin - a great pairing!

Okay, when my husband found out I only gave it a 4 he said "are you crazy - it was delicious, you're making it again, aren't you?" followed closely by "you have to go and change your rating to 5" Which I found I can't do once I've rated it already......moreeyecook in Ironwood loved it
