    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:30min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. In a warm saucepan warm through ginger, cumin, chilli powder, curry powder and coriander.
    2. Add the onion, parsnip, celery, carrots and stock then cook for 10 minutes before adding the lentils and rice.
    3. Cook for 30 minutes keeping an eye on the saucepan as the lentils soak up the water quite quickly and you don't want it to boil dry.
    4. Blend the soup using a hand held blender or a potato masher.
    5. Taste and season as required.

    Gorgeous. You would never know there is no fat - washing up easy too! The second time I made it, I added some left over spinach and that was good as well.  -  10 Nov 2015  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)


    This was delicious. Didn't have a parsnip so added a sweet potato instead and some herbs de Provence to taste. Yum.  -  28 Sep 2014  (Review from Allrecipes UK & Ireland)
