Creamy Coconut Curry Lentil Soup – Ready when you are

Summer is here – and we need this recipe. Salads can be great, but we’re often left begging for more. That’s where coconut curry lentil soup steps up.

It keeps that summer spirit high with its fusion of tropical coconut and smooth curry, complementing it with a juicy multivitamin twist.

We’ve tried many lentil soups in our time, both coconut and otherwise. The biggest danger is overcooking the veg and leaving yourself with a collection of limp, dejected green beans when you should have tasty fresh veg with a satisfying bite. We’ve devised a solution to make sure that doesn’t happen to you.

Coconut Curry Lentil Soup – Beating the System

No matter how tempting it is, DO NOT throw all your vegetables in at the beginning! Yes, we know it’s enticing, and we know it seems like you’ll save time, but it’s really not worth it.

This soup is already incredibly simple, and what makes it so successful is that resistant crunch as you take your first bite. So do yourself a favour, and hold the veggies back until you get the nod.

It’s easy too – we use a timer system to get the soup perfect. Just start a timer on your phone as you begin cooking and you won’t go wrong.

Protein Power

Coconut curry lentil soup shouldn’t be underestimated for its nutritional prowess either. Lentils pack a protein punch, and are rammed with all-important fiber, too.

In fact, so many of us don’t get enough fiber in our diets (according to Harvard) and it’s an issue we really need to focus on. Lentils are an extreme help in that regard.

The high fiber levels also mean you’ll keep feeling full for longer, too.

Of course, anything that involves sweet potatoes, multivitamin juice, bell peppers and sugar snaps (or green beans) is going to be a nutritional powerhouse. And if it tastes great? Well, that’s just a bonus!

Ingredients

  • 1 ¼ cups brown lentils (25 mins is standard cooking time, 1 ¼ cups = 300g)
  • 2 ⅓ cups vegetable broth
  • 1 ¼ cup multivitamin juice (the normal drinking stuff)
  • 1 can coconut milk (1 can = 450ml)
  • 1 red bell pepper
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas (1 cup = 100g)
  • ½ sweet potato (200g)
  • 2 red onions
  • 1 ½ tsp green curry paste (all colours work well, just check for fish-related ingredients if you’re vegan/veggie)
  • 1 tsp sugar
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Heat up the vegetable broth in a large pot, and bring to a boil.
  2. Chop the sweet potato, red onion and red bell pepper into cubes.
  3. Add the multivitamin juice, lentils and sweet potato to the pot. Start a timer with 25 minutes.
  4. Bring the heat down to a simmer.
  5. Add the coconut milk and red onion, followed by the curry, salt, pepper and sugar.
  6. After 18 minutes have gone past, add the red pepper cubes.
  7. After 22 minutes have gone past, add the sugar snap peas.
  8. At 25 minutes, everything should be ready! Give the lentils a quick taste to make sure they’re not chewy (give a few mins longer if necessary).
  9. That’s it, your coconut curry lentil soup is ready!

Recipe Notes

If you need to use different lentils, adjust your cooking (and timer) times accordingly. For example, if you use green lentils that need 45 minutes start your timer with 45 minutes on it. With 25 minutes left to go add the sweet potatoes and red onion. With 7 minutes left to go, add the red pepper. And finally, with 3 minutes left to go, add the sugar snaps.
