Yellow Lentil Soup

Hey Ninja Tribe ❤

How’s everyone doing today?

I wasn’t going to post the recipe for this here because I’ve been posting a TON of soup recipes lately and thought I should mix it up a bit. BUT I shared this over on my stories on my FB and IG stories (both @holisticnutritionninja) and you guys really wanted the recipe for this one so here it is…

I don’t know about you guys, but on a cold winter’s day, there’s nothing I love more than a warm, thick, hearty soup. I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again; if my dinner is a simple soup it MUST be really filling and delicious and hearty.

This one is no exception; it’s filling, loaded with flavour and super nutritious. This recipe happens to be vegan and loaded with plant protein, vitamins and minerals!

Ingredients:

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 tablespoon turmeric

1 teaspoon chilli flakes

1 kallo garlic cube

2 small onions chopped

4 cloves garlic finely chopped

2 potatoes

4 cups water

200g yellow split lentils

Alpro coconut cuisine

Fresh spinach

Method:

Start by heating up olive oil in a large pot and add onion and spices. Once the onion starts to cook and the spices bloom (when they become very fragrant, add you chopped potatoes – I leave the skin on mine for more fibre – and cook together for a few minutes.

Now add the water and rinsed lentils to your pot and cook everything together for about 30 minutes.

At this point add a lot of fresh spinach – and when I say a lot, I mean a lot! Mum got me a whole kilo of fresh spinach and I wasn’t sure what to do with it, so I thought I’d add it to the soup. I added about half a kilo to this soup.

This is optional but highly recommended. You could also use baby spinach, frozen spinach or a different leafy green, like chard.

Cook together for an additional 10 to 15 minutes and finally, add some coconut cream to each plate.

That’s it from me for today – make sure you ‘follow’ the blog to receive an email every time I post :~)
