I make this quite often actually. I would never even have tried it but for someone else giving it to me and I tried it to be polite. YUM!
This recipe is in the Everyday Cookbook - the one you get with the Thermomix in Australia.
Why wouldn't I have tried it? Well... not a major fan of tomato soup, and lentils? Aren't they something the Hari Krishna's use??
Anyway, this is delicious! And quick! Don't like it spicy? Don't put in the chilli!
What I really like about it is.. it is a quick, nutritious soup that can be made even if your fridge is running low on fresh ingredients. It is basically just a few items from your pantry.
HINT: When I make it, I make 1/2 the recipe. That gives me lunch over two days (with fresh hot bread of course)
HINT: a great base for a meat dish. Add some chicken (cut into small chunks brown it with the onion for 2 minutes) or some lamb (same)
HINT: conversely - use that to EXTEND a meat dish. Last night I made Chicken cacciatore and there was HEAPS left - I am going to add some red lentils and a chilli to it and re-cook for dinner tonight
