It is raining and the temperature is down at 13,5 degrees (C). It is that week of the year where our family and friends in Denmark like to point out that it is warmer there than here!! But what can I do; stay inside, read a good book and enjoy a well-made soup.
A few weeks ago Thomas made this tasty soup for the Weekend Buffet. So when ever it is a Soup Day in your country, brighten up your tast-buds with this one:
Creamy lentil soup with coconut and coriander (serves 4)
250 grams of lentils (you don’t have to soak them)
5 garlic teeth
1 can coconut milk
1 handful fresh coriander
Peel and cut all the vegetables. Then grate the lemon and squeeze the juice.
Sautee the vegetables and after 10 minutes add the lentils, coconut milk and lemon zest. Let it cook at low temperature for 50 minutes with the lid on. Before serving blend it well (we use a thermomix) with cilantro, lemon juice and salt & pepper. (I like to add chili!)
