Spicy Coconut & Lentil Soup

In the Kitchen


The lentils seemed to melt into the soup and the dash of curry paste really helped the flavour.

  • 2 tsp Peanut Oil
  • 1-2 Tbsps Red Curry Paste
  • 4 cups of vegetable of chicken stock
  • 2 cups of coconut cream or milk. 
  • 4 kaffir Lime leaves shredded. (I buy them ready to go in a jar) 
  • 1 cup of Red Lentils
  • 100 gms of button Mushrooms
  • Can of whole Baby Corn drained and halved
  • 80gms of snow peas (or use beans of no snow peas) 
  • 1 Tbsp of sugar


Put oil & curry paste in pan, and cook over medium heat for a couple of minutes. Add stock, coconut cream, lime leaves & lentils to the pan and cook 10 mins, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms, corn, snowpeas and sugar. Simmer till snow peas tender. 

Ladle into bowls  and serve with a flat bread . I put coriander on the top because I had some.

I made this using mostly ingredients from the pantry cupboard. It was very easy, and filling!

My new favourite thing!
