Curry Lentil and Coconut Soup with added zest from tomato, garlic, onion and ginger is a vegetarian delight! Even meat lovers are raving!

Let me introduce you  to one of my good friends….curry powder!  This vegetarian Curry Lentil and Coconut Soup recipe uses a lot of quality ingredients that I am starting to incorporate more into a healthier eating plan. Seriously trying anyway!  I only said healthier because there are things I am not ready to do without like fried onion rings. Really, I would admit I am an “onion ring lover” but it just has no ring to it!!

Super Food ingredients in this recipe

  • unsweetened coconut milk – source of iron, copper, magnesium and protein
  • ginger – powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects, may relieve nausea
  • red lentils – a super source of protein and fiber

These are just a few of the benefits that I found.  I truly make no claims about being a doctor, or dietitian or anyone with professional cred. Let me say it loudly…not a nutritionist! ! I’m just someone that loves food and trying to find something better for my family. 

Curry Lentil Coconut Soup is a vegetarian delight! Red Lentils, coconut and ginger give this easy soup amazing flavor.

Besides the amazing flavor with the curry, soup-friendly red lentils only take about 20 minutes to make. This fresh and delish soup is totally ready to eat in 45 minutes.

  1. You are correct…so sorry about that! I have added the water that is needed back into the recipe, 2 cups was a good amount ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜€. I recently switched to a different recipe plug-in and the process wasn’t as smooth as I had hoped. Thank you very much for letting me know.

  2. 4 stars
    Tastes great…but recipe is missing the amount of water. I added 2 cups of chicken broth and it turned out fine…not sure what the right amount is???
