Lentils are an excellent source of plant-based protein. They cook quickly and are wonderful for soups. This Curried Red lentil soup is creamy with a hint of coconut and light curry flavor. If you love curry feel free to add more curry powder for a stronger flavor. I like to puree most of my soups so I did with this one too. You can skip that step if you prefer. It tastes great either way. This is a large recipe that will serve about 8. I like to go big when I make soup. That way I can freeze some to have on hand for a quick lunch for myself. This recipe can easily be cut in half.
When hot add 4 onions chopped and cook for 5 minutes.
Stir well and cook for 2 minutes.
Simmer for 25-30 minutes or until lentils are tender stirring occasionally.
