    I just used this recipe as the basis for flavoring my first foray into "red lentils." The proportions of paprika, cumin, garlic, [and salt] were delicious!

    You can get sweet paprika at Penzys spice. If you cannot find it just use regular, I did.

    Thanks for the nice comments.

    This looks very delish! What is the difference between "paprika" and "sweet paprika" ?

    I love lentil soup, and will try this soon. Thank you. 555555

    I just made this, it's very good! I added some celery at the beginning though. I think it would be good with some tomatoes added.
