Heat the olive oil in a large, heavy-based saucepan over a medium heat. Sweat the onion, carrot and garlic for 6-7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until softened. Add the spices and stir well, cooking for a further minute. Add the chickpeas, lentils, chopped tomatoes, diced lamb and stock to the saucepan along with the bay leaf.

Spoon into soup bowls and garnish with a drizzle of the extra-virgin olive oil and a sprig of coriander leaves before serving.
