1st exam done and done well, only seven left.

Luzern is grey and rainy today so I thought I would make something warm and yummy for lunch.
I present to you a vegan curry coconut lentil soup! Say whaaaat yes I know it was the first time I had heard of lentil and curry together before either but trust me it’s amaaazing and just hot enough to make your lips tingle.

  • 1 tbsp olive/coconut oil
  • 1 large red onion, chopped
  • 1 spring onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, sliced
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1-2 tbsp green curry paste
  • 3 cups vegetable broth
  • 300ml coconut milk
  • 1 cup (natural) tomato sauce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 cups dry red lentils
  • Garnish: chopped parsley

Heat up the oil in a pan, fry the onion and garlic for a few minutes.

In a saucepan, mix the vegetable broth, coconut milk and tomato paste and add it to the lentils. Add the onion-mixture, bring to a boil and then let it simmer for 20 min or until the lentils are very soft (if the soup is too thick at this point, thin it with some water/vegetable broth).

In the very end, throw some parsley into the soup and if you want to, use it as garnish. Yum!

    Oh that looks yummy! I am unable to eat coconut or lentils due to a kidney condition…but if I could, I would definitely make this! 🙂

  2. Would love to try this. I also make a vegan chili with coconut oil to sauté the veggies. YUM!

    Looks good….I am not a Vegan so I wonder if I would like it.

  4. Hello and thanks for stopping by Self-help Health and liking my post on tongue scraping. I always appreciate when someone takes the time to leave a like or comment, plus it helps lead me to what they’re up to, like this nice blog of yours and this delicious sounding recipe. Periodically I put together posts with recipes I’ve come across that I think people might like to try, so I think I will feature this in the next one I do. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing!
