I would have thought that one would dilute with stock, milk or cream, potatoes without the skins, or something else with little or no fibre.

That's a fair point, but the original few posters were saying I ADDED fiber to the soup. Which is just wrong and not based in math or logic.

well, i think the point was that you did add fiber rich foods, albeit lower in fiber than lentils, in an effort to reduce fiber. you could have added something with little or no fiber for greater effect.

the overall percentage of fiber per portion was reduced, but not as dramatically as it seemed would be sensible.

recipe, soup

Canned Lentil Soup (Modifying for Less Fiber) I had eaten a canned lentil soup from ALDI a few weeks ago and was taken back by how much fiber was in it so this time around I modified it to have less of an impact if you know what I'm saying. I added diced canned tomatoes, cooked quinoa, and whole almonds that I smashed up, along with a squirt of sriracha and it turned out very good. I'm sure rice could easily be substituted for the quinoa. I'd say it was 75% canned lentil soup from ALDI with the rest of the soup comprising of diced tomatoes and quinoa with the almonds mixed in for crunch. 3 stars 1 reviews
