Down to Earth Organic Soup - French Lentil product reviews

This soup continues to top the popularity charts among lovers of good food, from ancient times to date. Often referred to as the king of Dals, it was patronized by emperors of the Mughal kingdom, where this Dal used to be the only vegetarian fare in an entirely non-vegetarian spread.

Relish this rich lentil soup, enhanced with organic spices and herbs. French lentil soup acts as a fantastic appetizer and is low in calories. Sauteed onion, carrot, celery combines in stockpot with French lentil. Oregano adds wonderful peppery, liquorice flavour that complements this soup. It is hearty enough for an entire meal and is packed with protein fibre and folic acid.

I have never been able to get lentils to taste interesting, so it is important that there is finally a soup on the market that tastes delicious, has lots of chewy bits, is mildly spicy, and is quick to prepare. And as an added bonus it is presented with a beautifully designed label which pays homage to its reputation as a vegetarian food fit for emperors. Two family members, both vegetarian, were meeting me for a meal at a nearby camping ground, so I thought this would be a good item to try with them.

I wanted the three of us to be able to taste this product, so I bought some cooked rice and soybean products from a local vegan shop and put these in the middle of the table. That way we could all try the combination with the soup. To add to the natural ingredients and sustainability themes of the soup, I left the vegan extras in their carryout container rather than transferring them to a plate as the container was a completely compostable material made from sugarcane fibre.

I liked the spicy additives in the soup. Each of us picked something different although all comments were favourable. I thought there was a reasonably strong flavour of cumin, and I also picked out the fennel. One said the strongest taste for him was pepper and tomato; the other said he noticed the ginger first. The consensus was that this was an attractive product which would be very useful when camping (their favourite pastime) as it would not need refrigeration, and one of them said it would be equally tasty whether eaten hot or cold. However, they thought the tin could have been bigger.

When the comment was made about being able to eat it hot or cold, I was still eating my portion, so I deliberately left a little in my plate so I could try it cold. He was right - it was just as nice, and on a hot day that would make sense. I could imagine it served cold with a drizzle of coconut cream on top - heaven! I also think it would lend itself well to being a soup base, this time as a hot meal. I would like to try it with some leftover cooked vegetables stirred through; this would make it go further, and the flavours would accommodate a little more bulking out. There are lots of possibilities; I am sure to think of more.
