a few weeks ago (when we were rehearsing a musical item for our ward conference) my friend kate made this delicious soup and served it up to us on a rainy day. it is so yum, that i had to get the recipe and have already made it again since... you should totally try it!
curried red lentil soup
1 tablespoon oil (i used coconut)
1 diced brown onion
1 teaspoon minced ginger
3 teaspoons minced garlic
squeeze of lemon juice
1 tablespoon mild curry powder
1 1/2 cups dried red lentils
1 can diced tomatoes
4 cups liquid chicken stock (i used the vegan brand)
1 can coconut milk
chopped coriander leaves
1. heat oil in large saucepan. cook onion, garlic and ginger for 3-5 minutes until onion is soft. add curry powder and cook until fragrant.
2. add lentils, tomatoes, squeeze of lemon, stock and coconut milk. bring to the boil. reduce heat to low and simmer uncovered for 20 minutes or until soup has thickened and lentils are cooked.
3. spoon into bowls with a little sour cream, top with chopped coriander and serve with crusty bread.
