Add the red lentils and chickpeas to the soup. Simmer until the lentils are soft, 20-25 mins. Tip: If the lentils need a little longer to cook, that's fine!

Once the lentils are cooked, season to taste with salt and pepper. Meanwhile, preheat your grill to high. Cut the ciabatta in half, pop on a baking tray cut side up, drizzle with olive oil. Season with salt and pepper and and toast under your grill until golden, 3-4 mins.
