Tip in the lentils, the vegetable stock and coconut milk and give everything a good stir. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 15-18 mins until everything is tender.

  2. Using a hand blender or in a food processor, blitz until as smooth as you like. Season and serve scattered with roughly chopped coriander and some naan bread alongside.

Fantastic flavour in this soup - but I listened to everyone else, an onion and a bit of garlic and a hefty sprinkle of salt and pepper is definitely needed for a little extra flavour boost. Excellent recipe.

Followed the recipe, just adding some seasoning at the end and was delicious. Will try next time with the onion and garlic as suggested in other comments to compare

Absolutely Delicious! I added the onion and garlic as others suggested and used full fat coconut milk for added creaminess. One of the best soups I've ever had. Making a double batch today!

Stunning recipe! I stuck to ingredients apart from adding 1l stock as I prefer the thinner consistency. I'll try added onion and garlic next time based on the advice to see how the taste differs but I didn't think it missed these.

Followed the advice of adding an onion and 3 cloves garlic (so unable to comment on the original recipe) and the results were amazing. A beautiful sweet, creamy and filling soup. Very happy!

I loved this soup,i added a red onion and 3 cloves of garlic for extra taste and used shwartz curry powder which may or may not have added turmeric..i dont know..but for a soup that has less than 200 calories per serving i found it really tasty and very filling,a winner!

Great soup but agree that it needs a bit more flavour. Add onion, garlic and more spices.

This recipe is absolutely delicious! Like other commenters, I added an onion and three cloves of garlic. If not fully pureed, it has a dhal-like consistency, and feels like a full meal. Personally, I think the recipe makes four servings, rather than six, but that depends on your portion size and control!

Delicious soup, thanks! I tinkered a little - added two chopped onions, and instead of the curry powder, added 1/2 tsp turmeric, 1/2 tsp garam masala, 3/4 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp coriander powder, plus 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper. Will definitely add to regular repertoire.

Delicious, I did sautee a small onion with the carrot and a couple of kaffir lime leaves which must be removed before blending...perfect I think!
