Warmly spiced and perfect for a cold fall evening. Double the recipe and save some for lunches the next day. I am going to try to make it with "light" coconut milk next time to cut down on the saturated fat.

Recipe Ingredients for Spiced Coconut Lentil Soup

1/2 red onion, minced
1 tbsp serrano pepper, minced
1 tbsp ginger, peeled, minced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 cup red lentils
14 oz coconut milk
3 cups water
1 Serving vegetable bouillon
1 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 fruit+2"+dia lime
1 tsp coconut oil

Recipe Directions for Spiced Coconut Lentil Soup

  1. Finely chop the red onion ? I actually like to mince mine with a knife.

  2. Heat the coconut oil in a heavy based saucepan. Add the onion, season, cover and allow to soften for several minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, mince the chili, garlic and ginger together. Add to pan, cover and cook for a few more minutes until the flavors begin to infuse ? your kitchen should be full of wonderful aromas by now.

  4. Rinse and sort the red lentils and add to pan along with the ground coriander, paprika and cumin. Mix thoroughly and then pour in the coconut milk and water. Sprinkle in the vegetable bouillon and lightly season with some pink Himalayan salt and freshly ground black pepper.

  5. Cover, bring to the boil and then lower to a gentle simmer for forty minutes, ensuring to stir frequently.

  6. Juice the lime and set aside.

  7. When the lentils have softened and almost disintegrated to form a thick, creamy soup, take off the heat, pour in the lime juice, taste for seasoning and serve with a few fresh coriander leaves for garnish.
