Ingredients

  • 2 cups Red Lentils
  • 4 Large Carrots, chopped
  • 2 Celery Stalks, chopped
  • 4 cup Vegetable Broth
  • 1.5 cup Full Fat Coconut Milk (1 13oz can)
  • 1/2 cup Diced Tomatoes
  • 2 tbsp Fresh Ginger, minced
  • 1 Small White Onion, chopped
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, minced
  • 2 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 2 tsp Cumin
  • 1.5 tsp Turmeric
  • 1 tsp Coriander
  • 1 tsp Paprika
  • Salt & Pepper, to taste

Instructions

  • Over medium heat, add coconut oil to a large pot and saute onions until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add celery, garlic, ginger, and saute for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add carrot dials (diced carrots), cumin, turmeric, coriander, paprika, pepper, and salt. Mix well and saute for 15 minutes. (If needed, add coconut oil to the pot to prevent the carrots from sticking or burning)
  • Add the lentils, diced tomatoes, and vegetable broth, and mix well. Turn the heat on low, cover the pot, and simmer for 35-40 minutes, until most of the broth has been absorbed by the lentils. Stir occasionally
  • Add the coconut milk and mix well. Cover the pot and simmer for 5 minutes.
  • The soup is now finished. If you would like to make the soup smoother, use an immersion blender to blend the soup. You can also use a ladle to transfer the soup into a high-powered blender. Blend until you achieve your desired texture.
  • Serve and garnish the soup with fresh cilantro, jalapenos, a dollop of coconut cream or dairy-free yogurt. Enjoy!

Notes

  • Store any leftovers in an airtight container for up to 5 days. 
  • Can freeze the soup and save it for later. When ready to enjoy, let the soup thaw out in the fridge and rewarm it in the microwave or stovetop.
  • Can substitute heavy cream for coconut cream, but dairy is best to avoid if you are sick. 
  • If you would like to make the soup thinner, add more vegetable broth (at the end) until you reach your desired consistency.
