Recipe: Cocomato Soup :)


Cocomato Soup:    *serves 4

-1 cup of mixed lentils (soaked overnight or for at least 4 hours in cool water)

-2 tbsp of garam masala spice

-1.5 vegetable bouillon cubes

-1/2 red pepper (chopped rough)

-1/2 onion (yellow or brown)

-2 garlic cloves (peeled, leave whole)

-2 tbsp of olive oil or ghee

-1 can of light coconut milk

-1 can diced tomatos

-1/2 cup of water

-fresh coriander for garnish

In a blender or food processor combine the red pepper, oil of choice, onion and garlic, until a runny paste  consistency.  In a large pot, add this mixture, and cook on medium-high heat while stirring slowly (3-5mins).  Add the garam masala spice, and cook for another 1 min.  Add the lentils (drained and rinsed of soaking water), as well as all other ingredients.  Stir together and bring to a boil.  When a boil is reached, turn the heat down to simmer and pop a lid on.  Simmer for 30 mins, or until lentils are soft.  Serve and enjoy!  This recipe was something I made up on a rainy day because I really wanted tomato soup, but I also wanted coconut, so cocomato soup was born! Hope you enjoy!  Thanks, and be aware and eat with care 🙂
