Lentils are dull, and so is this soup
Lack of variety
I think 'Spicy lentil and roasted vegetables' would be an interesting combo
Ainsley Harriott's spicy lentil soup is a reasonable soup - no more, no less. Personally, I found it a little bland, which was disappointing coming from a chef who is usually anything but. I may be slightly prejudiced though, as I must confess to not really being a lentil fan.
On a closing note, I strongly suggest that anyone passionate about not just soup, but tasty food in general, tries Ainsley's 'Scottish Chicken & Leek' soup from the same brand. This tasty concoction takes soup to exciting new levels that I didn't think were possible. Fantastic. And no, this isn't Ainsley Harriott writing this review.
