Red Lentil Soup with Chili, Fennel and sweet Cherry Tomatoes

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
  • bouillon
  • 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 

Enjoy! 😀
