Yellow Lentil Soup
As Spring in Europe has been delayed, I decided to post my favorite winter soup recipe.
This is probably my favorite meal. Being a vegetarian, I am always on the lookout for easy to cook protein meals. This is by far a budget friendly meal, and it is perfect for a first course as well as a main.
Your mood will instantly be lifted by just looking at the vibrant yellow color.
What you need:
1½ cups yellow lentils
1 small onion
2 gloves garlic
2 teaspoons olive oil or coconut oil
1½ teaspoons of yellow curry
1 teaspoon of ground turmeric
½ teaspoon vegetable salt (or salt of your choice)
Fresh ground pepper
1 litre of vegetable stock
- Prepare the vegetables.
- In a large pot heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic and carrots and sauté for about 3 minutes.
- Add the spices, carrots and lentils to the mix and stir for another minute before adding the vegetable stock.
- Let it boil on low-medium heat for 30 minutes. Stir occasionally, taste and add more seasoning if needed.
- When the soup is done, purée it using a blender.
Serve with garnish of your taste. Fresh or dried coriander or roasted pumpkin seeds.
