Coffee and Red Lentil soup

I had much debate about if I should post this recipe here or here, but in the end I decided that here would be best.

250g Red Lentils, dry and uncooked
4 Tsps Vegetable Bouillon Powder
600ml Water
2 Tsps Cayenne Pepper
1000ml Coffee - A mild to medium roast such as Colombian
Serves 2
  1. Mix the red Lentils, water, vegetable bouillon and cayenne pepper in a large saucepan. Don 't worry if all the vegetable bouillon doesn't dissolve
  2. Heat up the mixture until it is bubbling vigorously. Stir every so often until the vegetable bouillon has all dissolved.
  3. Keep a medium heat on the uncovered saucepan for about 5 minutes. A large amount of the water should have evaporated.
  4. Add the coffee.
  5. Turn the heat down to low so it is just on a slow simmer.
  6. Wait 35 minutes. Stir once or twice to check it's not sticking and burning on the bottom.
  7. Serve with crusty white bread.
