Red Lentil Soup with Turmeric
As a rule, turmeric works well with in Indian recipes. Here is a simple recipe for red lentil soup flavored with turmeric. Put a different spin on this soup by adding a cup of chopped fresh vegetables, a few handfuls of leafy greens such as spinach, or a cup of a cooked grain like rice or quinoa.
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 small yellow onion, minced
2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground turmeric
1 cup red lentils
1 teaspoon salt
1 lime, cut into quarters
1/2 cup plain yogurt
In a soup pot, heat the coconut oil on medium heat and add the onion. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the ginger, garlic, coriander, turmeric, lentils, and salt, and cook for one minute more.
Add 5 cups water and bring to the boil. Decrease the heat and simmer, stirring occasionally, until the lentils have cooked into a puree, about 20 minutes. Taste and add more salt if needed.
Top each serving with the juice of 1/4 lime and a dollop of yogurt.
