Red lentil soup

Lentil soup is easy to make, and you can add so many different things to it. In this recipe I really like the taste of coconut milk in it. It gives a really nice flavour to the soup. 

INGREDIENTS 4-5 persons

Time 30 minutes

1 yellow onion, finely chopped

1 garlic clove, chopped

1 carrot, finely chopped

1 can crushed tomatoes

2 dl coconut milk (0,8 cup)

1 grilled pepper

5 dl vegetable stock

2 dl red lentils (0,8 cup)

1/2 teaspoon chilli flakes

Olive oil for cooking


1. Heat oil in a big saucepan, medium heat. Add the yellow onion, and garlic and cook, stir often for 4-5 minutes. Add the carrot and stir and cook for another 3-4 minutes. 

2.Add the chili, water, vegetable stock, crushed tomatoes and coconut milk and stor and let it cook for about 10 minutes. 

3. Puree the soup with a liquidiser, and then add it all to the saucepan again.

4. Add the lentils and the squeezed lime. Let it cook for about 10 minutes until the lentils are done. 

5, Add more water if the soup is to thick (if you don’t like it like that like I do), Add salt and pepper.
