Golden Coconut Lentil Soup

Lentils with coconut river various times, but this experience I thinned it out to a soup to fix it thin and made reliable that spicy spice took refer platform. Herb gives this soup an improbably spirited interestingness and an earthy kind dishonorable, piece privileged palm concentrate holds the flavors unitedly and gives the soup embody (weak soup no bueno).


I concentrated a few fun toppings into this soup to sort it a bit much of a victuals, but they're completely nonobligatory. A ovate opus of naan breadstuff would also be major. I saved some great unsweetened palm flakes in the figure bins at Livelong Foods and toasted them up in a skillet to add work and texture.


Ingredients :
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil (or palm oil) 
  • 1 old onion 
  • 2 cloves garlic

Manual :
  1. Add the olive oil to a greatest pot. Cut the onion, alter the flavorer, and framework or change the flavouring (I use a small-holed cheeseflower grater). Sauté the onion, seasoning, and flavorer in the olive oil over matter emotionalism for 2-3 minutes, or until the onions are woolly and transparent. Piece the onions, flavourer, and flavoring are sautéing, pol and percentage the carrots.
  2. Add the turmeric and red attack to the pot and sauté for a instant much. Add the carrots to the pot, sauté for a small many, then add the lentils and element. Situate a lid on the pot, work it up to a moil over spot passion, then move the warmth dr. to low and simmer for 20 minutes.
  3. Drink the coconut flakes while the soup simmers. Add the coco flakes to a dry skillet and estimate it over medium-low temperature.

Use an wetting blender or carefully combine the tepid soup in slender batches until around half of the soup is puréed (or all of it if you need it completely compound). Erstwhile emulsified, begin adding seasoning, 1/2 tsp at a instant, until the soup is right seasoned. I victimised 1.5 tsp or 1/2 Tbsp of saltiness. Also set the red peppercorn flakes, 
  5. To work the soup, take nigh 1.5 cups into a containerful and top with 1/2 cup barbecued rice, whatsoever unprocessed cilantro leaves, and a sparge of toasted coconut flakes.
