Get high quality extra virgin and it will really set off this dish. Reply I LIKE BEEF STOCK TOO. Reply Chef my stomach is growling and my tounge is saying yes, yes, soup bread, and butter. Reply Anyone else notice how John loves to use the word "dump" when instructing you to place, put, or add something. Check it out. Reply I made this, but instead of black lentils I used a bag of brown recluse spiders. So good!! Reply I love your videos Reply if you soak the black lentils in water overnight, you can easily cook it in minutes. U don't have to boil /simmer it for hours. Save the cooking gas. Reply Needs some crusty bread to go with… Reply I just made this but with green lentils, cubed pancetta instead of bacon and a can of peeled tomatoes instead of the chicken broth, so basically i made something completely different, but i followed the same steps and same spices. I am writing this comment just to point out how great the soup was when i added the cubed avocado, especially because i think i added too much heat and the avocado creaminess canceled out that excess. Reply Hey Chef John, why do you serve your soup with a desert spoon and not a proper soup spoon? . It's like drinking wine out of a poly styrine cup. Not to be critical or judgemental or anything. ……. lol! Reply I may be a lil late. But lentils with asparagus is delicious. Reply Looks good, I'll check it for sure Reply Awesome recipe…..just surprised that no garlic was added. Maybe there's a reason I am unaware of. In any case, as always, enjoy!!! Reply hit it with a touch of vinegar for some zing to go with your bling Reply I made this soup without bacon and I couldnt find black lentils so I used green it came out delicious thanks chef john! Reply Can you say, 'FOODGASM?!" Going to make this today!!!!! Reply How should I go about the chicken broth/stock?I generally feel dirty buying premade stock from store shelves, but the time it would take to make some decent chicken stock wouldn't exactly make for an intuitively quick or easy meal. To those who have tried it and have yielded the fruits of their labor, what did you opt for? Reply This is so racist! I'm a green lentil and you think black lentils are better? I taste just as good as a black lentil. This is hurtful to green lentils like me everywhere:( Reply Great Soup!!!! Reply I love lentil soup!!! Thanks Reply very instresting Reply God I swear you have the best recipes of anyone. Reply a few of my ingredients were slightly different, but this was the most amazing lentil soup (mine was more a stew) i have ever made. and mine got blinged up nicely with creme fraiche…..omg soooo good! my first recipe with black lentils & definitely not my last. Reply I love your commentaries!! Makes cooking while following your recipes so much more fun XD Reply Never saw black lentils. Very important to cool the center of the beans or lentils or this soup will go bad in one day. Reply I made it tonight. Came out very good. The whole family enjoyed it. I didn't have bacon; used Big Fork Hickory & Applewood Smoked Uncured Bacon Sausage instead. Yup. Reply I was surprised you made this, I thought it was just typical in my country xd Reply Every time Chef John says "Enjoy", it makes me smile 🙂 Reply you have great recipes! looks so yummy Reply Can this be made with red lentils? Reply love how you always say "freSH (ly)" 🙂 Reply This soup is so yummy made this today with chicken with olives. I didn't think this simple soup would be so delicious!!! And adding sour cream with avocado makes it a 10++++++. Reply what can we use instead of bacon ? Reply Am I the only one wondering if the lentils are dry lentils or not? Reply Hi. I don't eat bacon (mostly don't eat meat, but never pork). Would the fake bacon bits work in this? I assume you'd want to add them more towards the end as they would probably get mushy if cooked too long. I guess I could also make regular veg bacon and add it at the end. The other thought I had was to add liquid smoke rather than 'bacon.' Would that give more of the taste of the original soup or take it in another direction? Love your videos, even if I don't eat a lot of what you make. Reply I wont eat that black shit that's your white people shit always wont something black in it Reply so are we saying that green lentils wont hold up the same as the black lentils?I have green lentils. truth be told ive cooked many many things even things most people here in America would never cook but I have never cooked a lentil. my wife said lets have lentil soup. I didn't tell her I had never made it before because I figured out of everything ive ever made it can not be that hard. so shhhh tell me if these green ones will hold up like those black ones do. because that soup looks great. Reply Where can I find them? Never seen them here in Miami? Reply Tasty Reply Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
