Obviously, it depends on the amounts you took out and added. It very well could be that you only cut down insignificantly on the amount of fiber in the soup.
And my other point was that it's curious that you substituted other high fiber foods for the lentils if your goal was to cut down on fiber.
Lentil soup is one of the easiest soups to make. I usually make mine a bit like Barbara Kafka's Equadorian lentil soup recipe using lentils, potatoes and habarnero peppers.
