With soup always err on the side of caution when adding the stock. It is better to have too little stock and add more in later than have a watery soup.
2. Add the lentils and the stock to the pan - just cover the ingredients in the pan with stock. Bring to the boil and simmer for 20 mins or until vegetables are fork tender.
3. Add the chopped coriander/cilantro. Blend with hand blender or leave to cool and transfer to regular blender. If the soup is too thick, add more stock. Season and serve.
Serving Size: Makes 6 bowls of soup
