Ramsay's Spicy Lentil Soup

this recipe is from gordon ramsay's 'Healthy Appetite' and I've had to pass it round my family it's so good. This is a veggie recipe but meat eaters love it! please keep an eye on it as the amount of water it needs depends on the type and age of the lentils.

    I'm giving this a 3 star rating because the recipe as posted is incomplete. The poster left off the garnishes, which add a whole dimension of texture and flavor to the soup, elevating it to a gastronomically interesting experience. Since becoming a fan of Gordon Ramsay's cooking a few months, I've seen so many incomplete and mistaken reposts of his recipes... it's kind of bizarre! I highly recommend getting his book, "Healthy Appetite", and not relying on online reposts of his recipes.<br/><br/>What is missing from this recipe as posted is a mixture of nigella seeds (also misleadingly called onion seeds), and mustard seeds, both toasted until they start to pop and then added to the soup. They add a cool new dimension of texture and flavor to the creamy texture and bouquet of the soup. Also, you add yogurt (I use kefir) as a garnish, along with fresh cilantro.<br/><br/>Without the missing parts that I described, the recipe as posted is quite ordinary and uninteresting.
