An easy creamy lentil soup recipe using fresh vegetables, simple ingredients and can be made from the leftovers of a divine meal too.
This is a spin off from my Lentil and Dumplings recipe because once cooked I had no idea how many times I would actually use it! So many ways to use one recipe that comprises of affordable pantry staples, what's not to love.
HOW TO MAKE THIS EASY LENTIL SOUP
I'm going to say that you've already read the lentils and dumplings. If not then best you first take a look at that because this recipe is based off of that one. The exact same recipe, all you do is remove the dumplings and set them aside, pour the lentil stew into a blend and blend till pureed. Pour the puree into a saucepan and bring to the boil then add a some coconut cream. A little or a lot of coconut cream will depend on how you want the soup, thick consistency or not.
DO YOU NEED CREAM?
Absolutely not. You don't have to add the cream it simply adds a creaminess to the soup however...this lentil stew is already AMAZING and it has it's own depth to it without the cream. When making the soup I probably added about a ¼ cup of coconut cream for inside the soup as well to drizzle over.
So now that we've established that you don't need to add cream remember the options are endless if you are looking at a drop or drizzle of something.
- Parmesan cheese
- Lemon zest and juice
- Sour cream (my absolute favorite)
- A dollop of yogurt
- A splash of Worcestershire sauce
- A sprinkle of Smell & Taste Spices
Your options are endless when using Smell & Taste 100% natural spices. You can go with Calabrese for a bit of heat. African Dreams for an entirely different experience. Vegetable spice for a herby fragrant spice, Involtini for a meaty flavor and the list goes on!
