Easy curried red lentil soup
A very quick, easy and inexpensive soup which can be prepared in the microwave or on the stovetop. Serve with rice (which can also be microwaved) for a filling meal. Red lentils can be found at health food shops. Common brown lentils can be substituted, but the texture is not as smooth.

Easy curried red lentil soup Preparation
Pick over lentils to remove any foreign material or discolored lentils. Rinse well.
Combine lentils, broth or water, onion, curry powder, and bay leaf (if using).
To microwave: use a microwave-safe bowl, cover loosely, and cook on 70% power until lentils are soft, about 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Stovetop: simmer until lentils are soft, about 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove from heat and allow to cool briefly. Puree using an immersion blender or a regular blender (be sure to cover the lid with a towel or pot holder) until smooth.
Add coconut milk or yogurt, if using.
Season with salt, if needed (esp. if water substituted for broth)
