Spicy Carrot Lentil Soup

Soup season is coming! And what better way to welcome those cool fall days than with a warming bowl of soup. This dish is hearty, creamy and full of flavour and you can easily adjust the heat level to your taste. The comforting aroma of this soup will have you embracing those crisp evenings, especially if it means you can eat this soup every night.

Serves 4 | 50 Minutes


  1. Cut vegetables and rinse lentils.
  2. Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and sauté a few minutes. Add ginger, garlic and carrots and sauté a few more minutes. Add lentils, red chili flakes (start with ½ tsp if you have a low spice tolerance) and salt and pepper to taste.
  3. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, for about 25 minutes or until the carrots are soft.
  4. Transfer the soup to a high-speed blender and blend until smooth. (Blend carefully or in small batches as the heat can steam and expand in the blender, which can push the top off and cause a mess and burn hazard.) Add back to the pot and whisk in the coconut milk.
  5. Store any leftovers in the fridge.
