Curried Lentil-Coconut Soup

Warm whole-wheat pita does such a good job sopping up this creamy soup, you might not need to wash any spoons.

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp canola oil
  • 2 onion , finely chopped (about 2 cups)
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils
  • 1 400-mL can light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Directions

  • Boil 5 cups of water in a kettle.
  • Heat a large pot over medium-high. Add oil, then onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft, 3 to 4 min. Add garlic, curry powder and 1 tbsp water. Cook, stirring constantly, for 1 min.
  • Add lentils and boiling water. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer, partially covered, stirring often, until lentils are mushy, about 30 min. Stir in coconut milk, honey and salt. Ladle into bowls. Sprinkle with cilantro.
