It almost filled my 10 5/8 inch dutch oven so I would guess it made close to a 3 quarts of soup maybe a little more how ever may servings that would be.

If each serving is 1 cup (8 ounces), then 3 quarts would be 12 servings. I think mine made more like 16 cups, or 4 quarts.

yes I think I was close to that did you use an entire lb of lentils?

I did.

the frozen one I did in the ice cube trays worked great now can't wait to make a small batch of my soup and add a cube of the lentils. I am be on to something here

I used what the recipe called for: 2 cups, which I actually measured (so unlike me). I thought about adding in the whole bag, but decided not too. I did add 6 cups of chicken broth and 3 cups of water, and then had to add 3 more cups of water so that the lentils wouldn't scorch. Maybe that's why I ended up with so much more than you.

When I go to the trouble of soaking beans (I usually just buy the canned pre-cooked variety), I usually will soak more than I need, and freeze the portion that I don't use. Frozen, pre-soaked beans can last up to 6 month or so in the freezer. Another time saving tip for those of us who don't want to necessarily wait the required amount of time for our beans to soak before using them.

how many uncooked lentils did you have left over.
I had practically no broth left by the time the cooking was done.
you seemed to add more liquid than I did. still very good but next time I make this I will decrease the lentils and make a smaller batch with a ton more seasonings and some tomato paste {sorry}
have you tried the no tomato tomato sauce? is it in the recipe data base? I'm going to go look

I've tried the one made with beets and carrots; gave me heartburn, but tasted very much like tomato sauce. I may try it again sometime.
