Coconut Curry Red Lentil Soup


Coconut Curry Red Lentil Soup

Serves 4-6


  • 2 bell peppers, diced

  • 1 small white onion, diced 

  • 2 large garlic cloves, minced 

  • 1 tbsp fresh minced ginger

  • 1.5 tbsp curry power

  • 1 tsp turmeric powder 

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • Salt & pepper 

  • 1 cup red lentils

  • 1 can diced tomatoes, lightly drained

  • 1 can full fat coconut milk 

  • 32 ounces vegetable broth

  • Juice of 1 lime 

  • Optional: greens for mixing in at the end (I used Swiss chard and kale)


  1. Heat a large pot over medium heat and add 1 tbsp oil. Sautéed bell pepper, onion, garlic & ginger for 3-5 minutes.

  2. Add spices and season well with salt & pepper. Stir for about 1 minute.

  3. Add lentils, tomatoes, coconut milk & vegetable broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer for about 20-25 mins.

  4. Optional for a more pureed version: puree 1-2 cups of soup using a blender or immersion blender.

  5. Mix in greens + lime juice and add more salt as needed.

  6. Add more broth if you like more liquid in your soup! I like this to be thicker which will be the outcome with the instructions above. Enjoy!
