This tomato and lentil soup is a favourite in our household and perfect after a cold winter walk. Serve with crusty bread.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Nice easy recipe. I didn't have and so didn't use the following: parmesan, croutons or cream. I do love a lentil soup but found this a little bland, perhaps because I skipped the above mentioned ingredients. I would make again but would tweak the recipe somehow to gain more flavour. - 23 Nov 2016
