Carrot and Lentil Soup Recipe

Red lentils are so quick and easy to cook. They are an excellent source of soluble fiber that provides a slow-burning carbohydrate source to feed you steady energy. [Sounds like a really great, energizing combination!] Makes 4 servings of this toasted spice carrot and lentil soup.

Lentil Soup Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
  • ⅛ teaspoon chili flakes
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large carrots, finely chopped
  • 5 ounces red lentils
  • 32 ounces vegetable broth
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 4 tablespoons plain low-fat yogurt

Lentil Soup Directions

  1. Heat a medium pot and cook the cumin seeds and chili flakes in the dry pot for 2 minutes, until fragrant and a shade darker.
  2. Set aside one-quarter of the seeds. Add the oil, carrots, lentils, broth, and coconut milk to the pan and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20 minutes until the lentils are soft.
  3. Blend with an immersion blender or in a food processor. Top each portion with 1 tablespoon of yogurt and sprinkle with the toasted spices.
