Share it:

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.

"This is exactly what I was looking for - something quick and easy to whip up for lunch, with ingredients that I already have on hand. And most importantly, it was delicious! Definitely a keeper."

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)
