    Straightforward, quick, excellent texture and combination of flavours. A real winner in our household.

    Even without the chile onions (we added harissa to taste), we really liked this soup. I thought the combination of spices was wonderful.

    I’m on a bit of a lentil soup binge, and this one sounded good to me. It is good, eminently edible and comforting, but I’m still on a search for something that excites me a bit more. My ras el hanout is homemade, and perhaps it wasn’t quite the right combination, or didn’t have enough heat. Those blends can be so different. I liked the chile-fried onions, but I wish they had been crispy onions, I would have liked a little bit of crunch. This all sounds very negative; I’m being too critical. It was good, I’d eat it again, but I’d continue my search before I’d make it again.

    REALLY good. Definitely do the chilli-fried onions and yoghurt, these take an already fabulous soup to even greater heights.
