Ginger and Cilantro Red Lentil Soup

Ginger and Cilantro Red Lentil Soup is one of my all time favourite soup recipes!  It is so hearty that it can be consumed as a meal or in a smaller portion as a starter.  Be sure to taste it before serving in case it needs some more lemon juice or ginger to taste.
