Rice and Lentil Soup



  1. Put the kettle on, you need about 500ml of water.
  2. Put the rice, lentils, coconut and stock into a pan.
  3. Once the kettle has boiled, add about 500ml boiling water to the pan. The amount is not exact, it depends how liquidy you like your soup. Stir until the stock has dissolved.
  4. Put the lid on, put the pan on a medium heat and set your kitchen timer for 25 minutes. When it starts to bubble, it needs to bubble gently (more than simmer, but not furious).
  5. When 25 minutes have passed, turn off the heat and let it stand for 5 minutes.
  6. Serve

If your brown rice is not par-boiled, cook for 45 minutes instead of 25.
