    Can you please advise me if the Lentil Soup served at Empire is Vegetarian? If not, what is the base? Do you give out the recipe? Thank you very much.

    Hi Tasha,
    I talked to our executive chef- you tried the Lentil soup on one of two days that it was served this season! Unfortunatly, There is no “official recipe” but I can tell you what is in it:
    homemade vegetable stock
    onions
    carrots
    celery
    green lentils
    salt and pepper
    (one of the days we added madras curry powder)
