    misstasty's Note:

    This soup is a little spicy, elegant enough for a dinner party, super cheap to make and very tasty... Don't be put off by the lentils - trust me you won't know they are there (and secretly they are so good for you).

      Amazing recipe! It is very very inexpensive, and the flavour is fantastic! I left out the coriander because I was feeling lazy, used vegetable stock in place of chicken, and pureed the soup in 2 batches in the blender and it came out perfectly. Definately nice enough to serve at a dinner party. Thanks for posting!

      Surprisingly delicious. I didn't use onions because I don't like onions, but this was still a great, filling, and healthy soup. It didn't taste sweet at all.

      What a great way to use lentils and create a delicious and healthy dish. I used my hand blender to puree... and I used cilantro that comes in a tube (sounds strange I know... but there are herbs available in the produce section that last longer than fresh herbs). I also cut the recipe in half and used only a half of an onion. This is a keeper... but remember to serve only to those who like cilantro (some people are very adverse to the taste, but I love it!)
