Recipe Ingredients for Red Lentil Soup with Greens

1 1/4 c red lentils
1 tsp salt
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 1/2 tsp fennel seeds
1/4 tsp red pepper flakes
1 tbsp ginger root
3 garlic cloves, minced
4 c rainbow chard, chopped
1/2 tsp salt
14 oz light coconut milk

Recipe Directions for Red Lentil Soup with Greens

  1. Rinse the lentils and drain. In a soup pot, bring 5 c water, lentils, and 1 tsp salt to a boil. Reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender, about 30 min.

  2. While the lentils cook, warm the oil in the saucepan on medium heat. Stir in the fennel, red pepper flakes, ginger, and garlic, and cook for a minute, stirring constantly. Add the greens and the salt and cook, stirring frequently, until the greens are just wilted. Stir in the coconut milk and simmer for a minute. Remove from the heat.

  3. When the lentils are soft, stir in the greens and coconut milk mixture and add salt to taste.
