This red lentils and carrot coconut soup makes a lovely warming meal on a cold day. I love its orange glow and the soft, smooth creaminess of the coconut milk.


Serves: 6 

  • olive oil
  • 1 large onion, roughly diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 tablespoons medium curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • 4 medium carrots, thinly sliced
  • 250g red split lentils
  • 1.2 litres vegetable stock
  • 400ml light coconut milk
  • 1 to 2 lemons, juiced
  • salt and pepper, to taste

  1. Heat some olive oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Gently fry the onion and garlic with the curry and coriander for 5 minutes.
  2. Add carrots. Mix well and cook for 5 minutes, then add red lentils and vegetable stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and cook covered under medium heat for 20 minutes until carrots are cooked.
