Spicy Red Lentil Soup

Contrary to what its name suggests, the colour of the «red» lentil is actually closer to orange. It is a smaller and rounder lentil than the more commonly found brown type and falls apart as it cooks. It is rich in proteins, minerals, vitamins A and B.

Before you start

It is not necessary to soak the lentils in advance.


Rinse the lentils well under cold water and drain.

Heat the oil in a pot over medium heat. Finely chop the onion, add it to the pot, and sauté with occasional stirring 4-5 min until translucent. Add the minced or pressed garlic, grated ginger and spices. Cook 1 min with stirring. Add the lentils, broth, diced tomatoes, salt, and pepper.

Bring to a boil then reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, 15-20 min until the lentils become very soft. Pour in the coconut milk (optional) and lime juice. Adjust the seasoning.

Serve in bowls and garnish with fresh cilantro leaves (optional).
