Kimchi Lentil Soup with Poached Eggs

Serves 4 Prep Time 20 minutes   Cook Time 40 minutes   Rated:

We have had this twice is that good. Just perfect for these colder days and nights at the moment. With or without the eggs on top. I did find the egg added a creaminess to the soup and brought the heat down a bit, as does the kimchi. Don't be shy with the amount of kimchi you use. The acidity or sourness of the kimchi will really compliment the heat and help you get through it with less difficulty. It is quite hot, which we only discovered on the second time around when we didn't have enough kimchi to go around and left the eggs out!

You have been warned. But oodles of flavour. My mouth is watering as I write this just remembering. Plenty of deep, spicy, umami notes.
