Anna: As the name suggests, this is described as a very quick soup to make.
Peter: And was it?
Anna: Well I managed to rustle it up in the last 10 minutes of Louis’s nap time so yes, I’d say this is a fair descriptor. I’m not sure I’m overly thrilled with it though.
Peter: I think it’s nice. It’s not as worthy as some lentil soups can be. It has a nice sweetness to it.
Anna: I just don’t think it’s filling enough. You expect lentil soup to be filling. The minestrone was a much more satisfying bowl of soup. I expect it’s because there isn’t enough lentils. One tin for a recipe that serves 4 doesn’t seem enough to me.
Peter: So does speed triumph over satisfaction?
Anna: In soup, as generally in life, no.
