From the Courier Mail 'Body and Soul' liftout. Want to try it, but let me know if you do first!


  1. Rinse lentils and add to the pan with water.
  2. Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer for 15 minutes.
  3. Spoon off any scum or froth from the surface.
  4. Add the carrot and ginger and continue to cook for a further 15 minutes.

  6. Return to the boil then turn off.
  7. Serve immediately.

I wanted to use up the miso I had and found this recipe. As I cooked it I thought it would be horribly bland, but it was dynamite. I absolutely loved it and shared it with friends and family...SO GOOD!

I liked it, the kids didn't.It wasn't thick enough for them as they prefer pumpkin soups. Very nice though.
