Place the lentils and water in a medium saucepan over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Stir in onion, garlic, and ginger. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 30 minutes, or until lentils are tender.
Place the coconut and soy milk in a blender, and blend until smooth and thick. Stir into the lentil mixture. Season with curry and pepper. Return to the stove and continue cooking for another 10 to 15 minutes.
Used different ingredients.
I used "lentils" rather than the more expensive "red lentils". The flavor was great! To me, soup should have more of a liquid content, but I did enjoy the cooked lentils with the seasoning! - 20 Jun 2011
