Im up late (or early) and looking at a bunch of crap on the internet. I came across a Shortt video recipe for lentil soup, so I figured I'd take a look. Everything looked good, but the finished product looked more like a bean side dish than a soup. The beans were literally mounding way above the minimal liquid. I'm sure if not eaten immediately, the beans will absorb whatever liquid is left. I guess everyone has their own preference, but I prefer more of a soup when Im eating soup. This is just one snap shot of the video, he eventually smooths out the mound (which looks better) but still doesnt look soupy to me.
