A truly simple, easy and delicious spicy soup. All my friends that have tried it - love it. It's a great meal on it own or as a starter served in smaller portions. It also has the bonus of making me look like I know what I'm doing and sets the standard for a great evening. The recipe has been amended from the basic red lentil soup with bits added.
You may wish to add some yoghurt and fresh coriander before serving. A lovely simple spicy soup - 'apply daze.
I used 1 tablespoon of chilli flakes, you can make it as spicy as you want, by adding more or less chilli fakes.
wonderful recipe!!I don't like spicy food so I used a small pinch of the chilli flakes and it was just right for me. My husband adds extra to his!! - 05 Apr 2013
This is a lovely winter warming soup and so easy to make. I used fresh chilli instead of flaked and did not use the coriander. I will make this again but next time I think I may use a little less cumin as I found it over powering. I also blended everything, including the chickpeas. Thoroughly recommend. - 07 Dec 2013
My husband & I loved this soup, just the thing for a cold autumnal day. I used a good heaped teaspoon of chilli flakes and fresh parsley instead of coriander as I didn't have any. Will definitely make this again. - 12 Sep 2013
