Yuck! I love lentil soup and so I thought I would try this because I also love garlic and mushrooms. It was disgusting. It was very bland. I tried everything to fix it up to be edible, but no luck. I added sea salt, white pepper, and even sirachi sauce, but it did not help. I also bought the red pepper lentil soup, so am going to try that one too and see if it is any better. I also did not like that the soup was very watery. I prefer my Lentil soup to be of a ticker consistency.
