Lovely soup - however I did find simmering for 3 hours to be excessive! Apart from that great recipe! - 01 Mar 2012

It's well named "yummy lentil soup" I made it for tea but tested it after two hours, it was so yummy we had a bowl there and then. I added a splash of lea and perrins and it tasted even better. - 11 Sep 2013
