Default Curried Red Lentil Soup

This was a very yummy soup... I made a few changes to make it more SBD friendly

Curried Red Lentil Soup

Serves 6

  • 2 tsp Whole Foods Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 large onion, coarsely chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 11/2 tsp cumin
  • 3/4 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (I used chilli flakes)
  • 1 cup carrot juice (I used a 1/4 cup of tomato paste)
  • 1/2 pound unpeeled sweet potatoes, cut into 1/2" chunks
  • 1 cup red lentils (about 7 ounces), rinsed and picked over
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 1 bay leaf
Prep Time: 50 minutes
  1. In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add onion and garlic and saute until onion is tender, 5 to 6 minutes. Stir in cumin, turmeric, coriander, salt, black pepper and cayenne, and stir-fry for 30 seconds.
  2. Add carrot juice, potatoes, lentils, carrots, bay leaf and 31/4 cups water (I used vegie stock that is salt and fat reduced); cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes. Remove and discard the bay leaf before serving.

I also put in loads more vegies like cauliflower florets, red capsicum and zucchini and I cooked it for a bit longer to make it a bit thicker... I also added the juice from one lemon at the end to give it some zing!

VERY good recipe. This tastes great with some fresh cilantro mixed in before serving and a bit of light coconut milk if you are "allowed"
