Coconut Lentil Soup

I made this a few weeks back because it’s rich like comfort food without being unhealthy or fatty .I’m dreaming of going back to India or Asia so I took myself there with the spices and coconut milk I based this soup on.

You’ll need:

800ml of organic coconut milk
a cup of organic green lentils
a cup of kale
a cup of baby spinach
turmeric
ginger
200g of very thin rice noodles
3 cloves of garlic
2 teaspoons of ghee

fry up the spices in coconut oil and let them simmer until the turmeric is sizzling and the oil is yellow. Put in the cup of lentils and cover them in oil and let them simmer around 2-3 minutes. Add the coconut milk and stir until it’s lightly boiling then turn down the heat. When the lentils are soft, which should take around 25 minutes, add in a cup of water to add some extra liquid before adding the rice noodles and greens. Add two teaspoons of ghee for a nutty flavour.

When everything is soft serve and I would suggest cutting up a bunch of coriander to serve. I also grated a small amount of fresh lemon or lime zest to give this soup some bite!

Let this soup take you somewhere exotic in your mind.

Kale Soup

Winter time calls for soup time. This simple recipe is something that you can make very quickly at home and is perfect for a light meal with melted cheese on toast (oops!). This soup is just so easy, see for yourselves….

Here is how I did it:
a bunch of kale
a cup of lentils
vegetable stock
a bunch of spinach

I use organic green lentils and cook them up until soft. You’ll need to then drain the water and put new water in as the base of the soup and add the vegetable stock and any herbs or spices that you wish to use. For this soup I use some garam masala and herbes de Provence. The rest is simple: add in the kale and spinach and when the soup is cooked down and soft, blend it and serve it with a dollop of crème fraîche and the zest of a lemon or lime. Yum!
