Meatless Lentil Masala Soup
Meatless Monday! It's nice to go a day without eating meat regardless
if it’s a Monday. Eliminating meat from your day allows you to opt for
proteins that are not found in animal products.
Prep time: 10 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
1 teaspoon coconut oil
1/2 cup red onion, diced
4 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon garam masala
1 teaspoon Himalayan Salt
1 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
4 cups organic vegetable broth or bone broth (non-vegan)
3 cups diced tomatoes
1 cup red lentils, dry
1 cup organic coconut milk, canned
4 cups kale leaves, stemmed and chopped
Heat coconut oil in a large stockpot over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for about 4 minutes or until translucent. Add in the minced garlic and saute for another minute.
Stir in the turmeric, garam masala, and Himalayan salt until mixed. Add the cilantro, vegetable broth, and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
Add dry lentils, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes.
Once the lentils are cooked, pour in the coconut milk. Stir, then add the kale. Cook kale until it’s wilted.
Remove from heat and ladle into bowls. Garnish with chopped almonds and cilantro.
