    Best soup ever!

    Posted by Kayleigh P on Feb 5th 2024

    I was looking for a good sausage and lentil soup mix as I don’t always have time or the mind to think of everything at the store. THIS right here was the best one so far! I recommend supplementing with spicy Italian sausage but that’s about it!

    My little substitute

    Posted by Lisa on Feb 2nd 2024

    This is such a good, healthy—unless you’re a vegetarian /vegan—soup mix. I’ve made it several times for my family but since there’s so much, I always share it with someone . When my mom was in a care home, I brought a whole kettle of this for the caregivers and residents. It was a big hit. And the caregivers appreciated a day off from cooking! The only substitute I make is using Kale instead of zucchini. I’ve used zucchini, but my family likes the kale better. It’s really a versatile recipe. The local market doesn’t always have this “kit”, but I grab one when I see it! Thank you! Keep it in stock, please!

    I was introduced to your products by my neighbor here in New Hampshire, when she brought me a pot of your delicious Sausage & Lentil Soup when I was ill. Truly comfort food!

    Excellent! This was one of the best soups I've ever had!

    Posted by April D. on Oct 8th 2023

    I used 1 cup of dry, red wine with the beef broth & substituted diced, sweet bell pepper for the zucchini. In addition, I added two bunches of organic, chopped, flat leaf parsley in the last 30 minutes of cooking, as well. A very tasty, savory soup!

    Hearty and amazing

    Posted by Elissa on Sep 29th 2023

    I'm not a big soup person but I bought this on a whim a few years ago and I've been buying it every winter since. Turned into a tradition where I make this the first snow of the season. Made it for family and they wanted the recipe. Layers of flavor, rich, hearty, and I like to add a little extra spice. Tastes like it took hours to make. Whole house smells amazing too. Bring on the snow!

    Somewhat bland

    Posted by Gerry Kolaitis on Sep 24th 2023

    The soup is somewhat lacking in flavor. I managed to improve it slightly with a sprinkle of white wine vinegar but ultimately it may have needed more salt. What was additionally disappointing was the choice of zucchini as it literally disintegrates and turns into “mush” . It would also benefit from the addition of garlic either sautéing or during the browning of the sausage and/ or adding whole cloves during the cooking process.
