Soups create a wonderful healthy meal. If you have any vegetables in your refrigerator that require immediate use, making a soup is a nice solution.



Red lentil soup for the soul


Similarly to the metabolism boosting cauliflower soup, the red lentil soup is very flavoursome because of the warm and rich spices added to it. This meal brings you comfort and soothes your soul; no matter what negative feelings you might experience, the red lentil soup will boost your mood.

Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes
Serves: 5

Ingredients:

1 teaspoon coconut oil
2 small yellow onions, peeled and chopped
2 stalks celery, diced
4 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon fresh ginger, grated
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander
3 cups low-sodium vegetable stock
1 cup red lentils, rinsed
1 cup coconut milk
zest and juice from one lime
teaspoon sea salt
Fresh parsley leaves, for garnish

Method:

In a large pot over medium-high, heat the coconut oil. Add the onions, celery and carrots to the pot. Cook the vegetables until the onions are translucent, for about 5 minutes.

Add the lentils and stock to the pot. Bring the mixture to a simmer; cook the soup for about 10 minutes, until the carrots are soft and lentils are cooked.

Stir in the coconut milk, lime zest and juice and salt. Return the soup to a simmer. Once the soup is simmering, remove it from the heat.

Let the soup cool before storing. If saving the soup for later, fill the jars with the soup, cover and place them in the refrigerator for an easy grab-and-go lunch.

The coconut milk in the recipe could be replaced by any other plant milk, like oat or almond milk, for example. A lemon could be substituted for the lime.

For more flavourful meal, you could add additional spices to the soup, like cinnamon and turmeric, for example.
