I've made this twice (one time I added some sliced carrots for extra veggies) but made it just like the directions said and it was ready in 30 minutes. I did have to add about 1/4 cup more veggie broth and I didn't soak the lentils before hand. Super easy to make and my family loves it.

lentils that are not soaked will never cook till soft in 30-40 minutes so allow an hour and a half if you want them to be creamy.

Just made this, absolutely delicious! I did make slight variations based on what ingredients I lacked (tomato paste instead of sauce and table salt instead of himalayan). I also added the additional broth as the lentils sucked it up during the cooking. Will definitely make this again!
