Super healthy filling lentil soup with coconut, lime and ginger

Do your health a favour this week and have this incredibly nutrient-dense soup. Lentils are packed with healthy protein, and vegetables of all colours are added right in the end so they don’t boil and lose any nutritional value. It also includes a little healthy fat from the coconut. The best part? It might be the best tasting soup I have ever had. Make sure to adjust the seasoning (with soy sauce and lime) in the end so it is perfect right before serving. Sprinkle a little extra coconut on top, and perhaps even a few cashew nuts. It’s a winner.

Crunchy lentil soup with coconut and ginger
 
Ingredients
  • STEP ONE
  • 1.5 cups dried green lentils soaked if needed according to package instructions
  • 2 litres of water (more if needed)
  • 2 tbsp organic vegetable stock ('Asian' flavoured if available)
  • 3 tbsp tamari (or other gluten free soy sauce)
  • 2 stems lemongrass
  • 3 cloves chopped garlic
  • 2 thumb sizes ginger, shredded
  • ½ thumb size red chill, thinly sliced
  • STEP 2
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 1 small red onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • STEP 3
  • 1 red pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 yellow/orange pepper, finely chopped
  • 4 handfuls of fresh spinach, finely chopped
  • 1 large bunch of fresh coriander, finely chopped (stems included).
  • ¾ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 lime
Instructions
  1. Soak the lentils according to package instructions, then boil with all ingredients in step one above. Approximately 30 minutes, but follow package instructions again, as the lentils should be soft. Boil under lid, on medium to low heat. If you run out of water, add a little more as you go (taste then as you might want to also add a little more vegetable stock).
  2. When you have approximately five minutes left of the cooking time, add all under step two.Let it boil with the lentils for a few minutes, until you move over to step 3.
  3. Before serving add everything in step 3, including squeezing over the lime juice. Take a moment to adjust the flavouring - add more lime juice and more soy sauce perhaps. You can even add a little more shredded ginger for extra sting. Serve with more coconut on the side, more tamari and more lime and perhaps even a few cashew nuts.

  • Tagine is having a huge revival in my kitchen and this is my standard way to cook it, with potatoes, chickpeas and raisins and a whole array of fragrant spices. And what goes with it is almost equally important: always yoghurt, pomegranate seeds, fresh herbs, pistachios and millet. The perfect thing to serve any day of the week this season. #vegan #plantbased #planetplantbased #meatfreemonday #vegansofig #wholefoods #foods4thought #vegetarian #vegerarisch #glutenfree #glutenfrei #eatfortheplanet #eeeeeats #plantbased #bestofvegan #thrive #thrivemag

  • This photo holds clues to a project I've been working hard on for the past year. A project which will take the food-blog I launched four years ago and named Planet Plant-Based into its next very exciting phase. I really can't wait to share more info very soon. I'll also have to share the recipe for this edamame spaghetti with tofu bolognese - honestly such a crowd pleaser, and super easy to make! #planetplantbased #eatfortheplanet #excitingtimes #vegan #vegetarian #vegansofig #vegansofinstagram #meatfreemonday #glutenfree #glutenfrei #vegetarisch #plantbased #glutenfreepasta #bolognese #foodblog #organic #wholefoods #foods4thought
