A question about a recipe: Lentil and Sausage Soup for a Cold Winter's Night

I have a question about step 6 on the recipe "Lentil and Sausage Soup for a Cold Winter's Night" from AntoniaJames. It says:

"Stir the lentils in with the cooking water. It doesn’t matter whether they are cooked. Just add them now, and add the stock. "

Thanks, HLA. So, you have onions cooking in your main soup pot. If you've wanted to save some time, you've already gotten your lentils cooking in a smaller pot in some water. When the onions are ready, you add the lentils, whether they're fully cooked or not, along with their cooking water, plus the stock that's called for in the ingredients list. Hope that helps! ;o)

Dump the whole lot, lentils and water into the pot with the onions.
