  • This soup sounds like it would be so full of flavour and goodness. My only problem is that I’m not a fan of coriander, so do you think it would be o.k. to use parsley instead? With some toasted sandwiches or cheese on toast it would be a great warming meal.


    • We are not huge fans of coriander either, I usually substitute it for parsley and recipe always turns out great.

  • Lentils are really good for you. This is an excellent recipe for getting kids to eat lentils. One can even blend the soup so that it is a smooth texture. This way the kids will not know that there are lentils in the soup!!
