Lentil Curry Soup
This recipe came from a blog called In Sonnet's Kitchen. This lady is a certified holistic health coach and that just SCREAMS healthy clean eating recipes to me. I bet she has tons of recipes that would work for the RedRiver Anti-Inflammatory Diet. Check it out and let me know if you find something delish!
1 Tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 teaspoon cumin
2 teaspoon curry powder
1 cinnamon stick
2 bay leaves
4 garlic cloves, minced
2 Tablespoons fresh ginger, minced
2 carrots, diced
2.5 cups vegetable broth
1/2 can of coconut milk (about 1 cup)
1 cup green lentils
dash of cayenne pepper
salt and pepper to taste
1. Add the olive oil to a pot over medium heat. Add the yellow onion and sauté for five minutes, until translucent.
2. Add the cumin, curry powder, cinnamon stick, bay leaves, garlic, ginger, and carrots and sauté for an additional 2 minutes.
3. Add the vegetable broth, coconut milk, lentils, and cayenne pepper and bring to a boil. Simmer, covered, for 30 minutes, or until the lentils are tender. (If too much of the liquid has evaporated, you can add more vegetable broth or water).
4. Remove the cinnamon stick and bay leaves. Add salt and pepper to taste and serve hot.
**Randi's Side Notes**
~ I did end up adding a whole can of the coconut milk mainly because I REALLY love coconut.
~ This would be fantastic with some chicken added as well if you NEED some meat.
