I think this is my overall favorite course. A spicy delicious lentil soup!
Quick and easy to make, tastes really good, makes you satisfied for quite a long time and you can use any kind of vegetables you like – and have at home.
Red lentils are perfect to have handy all the time for a good and nutritious meal. This time I made the soup with fresh fennel and sweet cherry tomatoes.
Here is how it’s done!
- 3/4 to 1 dl red lentils
- Red chili paste, 1/2 teaspoon (1 if you want it more hot)
- some thinly sliced fresh fennel
- 4-5 ripe cherry tomatoes
- Some coconut milk
- Lemon- or lime juice
Fry slightly the chili paste in some butter
Rinse the lentils and add them
Add boiling water
Add the sliced fennel
Cook until the lentils are really soft – 12-15 minutes. Taste the soup! If not soft enough, let it boil a couple of minutes more.
Add the coconut milk
Add the tomatoes cut in halves
Add lime or lemon juice
