    Whizz's Note:

    This recipe is a quick to make and substantial to eat. Just the job for Winter days. It is based on a recipe published long ago by the english Cranks restaurants. If you like a chunky soup then serve as cooked, but if you like your soups smoother then blitz it in a blender or food processor.

      the BEST EVER lentil soup recipe from the first original Cranks cookbook! Fantastic not only in taste but the ingredients list is ALWAYS found in someone else's kitchen, as long as they have LENTILS!

      Very good and hearty dinner, when you need something quick. I added some sliced fresh mushrooms, which worked well, and I used some fresh tomatoes as well. Definitely a keeper recipe
