    Made this soup today, its lovely, and soooo simple to make. If you do add to much lentils, and it leaves the soup thicker than you want it, just add a little water to thin it back down. Will definately be making this soup again.

    I don't soak them and they're always cooked fine, but it's up to you :)

    Do the lentils cook enough when in with the potatoes or do you have to soak them before hand??! Seems really tasty and making it for a porrly boyfriend:-D

    I would specify how much lentils to use but i never measure it so couldn't tell you. It all depends on how thick you like your soup.

    I made it last night! It was nice, but you need to specify how many lentils to use :)
