I make this soup every single week. It’s the laziest most delicious soup ever.
1.5 cup rinsed dry red lentils
3 cup water
1 can coconut milk
1 tblsp turmeric
Salt and pepper to taste
Juice of 1 whole lime (or apple cider vinegar in a pinch)
Optional: add some kale or spinach if you want some additional nutritional density. You can add them to the pan in the last couple minutes of cooking.
Rinse the lentils.
Add to a soup pan with the water, and a little bit of salt. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Continue to add water if necessary.
Cook until the lentils soften and begin to fall apart.
Add the coconut milk, turmeric, and lime. Cook for a few minutes until everything is at the desired temperature.
Adjust salt and pepper to taste.
Serve with cilantro, an extra squeeze of lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste.
