    1. 1
      Heat the oil in a large (preferably non-stick) saucepan (one which you can cover, in a later step), add the lamb and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side or until the lamb has browned; remove and set aside.
    2. 2
      Add a little more oil if it is needed (but if you are using a non-stick pan this shouldn't be necessary), then add the onion and garlic and cook for 2 minutes or until they are tender.
    3. 3
      Return the lamb to the saucepan with the stock, potatoes and tomatoes and simmer covered for 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    4. 4
      Add the undrained brown lentils, pumpkin and thyme; season to taste; and simmer uncovered for a further 30-40 minutes or until the lamb is tender.
    5. 5
      Serve - garnished with parsley - in large bowls and crusty rolls.

      We loved this soup! the only change I made was I added in some cayenne pepper and increased the garlic to 8 cloves, this is so good, I'm going to try it with pearl barley next time, thanks for sharing bluemoon!
