The recipe comes from a website called www.atouchofzest.com. It's all about healthy eating made easy. Based on this soup recipe, this is a website that you should bookmark and come back to. I know I will! I made no changes to the recipe. It may seem like there's a lot of cumin and coriander, but trust me, it's the perfect amount! If you enjoy Indian food, even just a little, I think you'll really enjoy this soup. You can find the recipe here, http://atouchofzest.com/red-lentil-coconut-soup/ When you go to the website, you'll find a print version that will be easy to print off and save.
Red Lentil and Coconut Soup
2 cups of red lentils, rinsed until water runs clear
- Add onion, garlic, ginger, chilli and carrot to a large pot with a little oil and fry for around 10 minutes
- Add cumin, coriander and paprika and mix well to combine
- Add stock and lentils to the pot and bring to boil. Simmer for approximately 10 minutes
- Add the coconut milk, tomato paste and diced tomatoes and simmer for a further 20 minutes
My chives have started coming up, so I sprinkled a few on my soup to serve. Fresh cilantro would also be a nice garnish.
Hope you are having a lovely and peaceful Sunday!
