Lentil Soup

This is one of my favorite recipes. I’ve shared it a lot on my instagram and I do it at least once a week. It is a good source of protein and you can have left overs during the week. I like cooking food that is easy to take with me and heat up, when going to work, I also don’t need to worry about cooking every single day.

So here we go..


  • onion
  • can of tomatoes (no added sugar) or fresh sliced
  • can of coconut milk
  • 750 ml water mixed with three table spoons vegetable broth
  • cayenne pepper
  • cumin
  • 250 grams red lentils

You start by mincing the onion, sauté in a pot for 2 minutes in olive oil. Add the can of tomatoes or your freshly sliced ones, also add coconut milk, vegetable broth and lentils. Let all of this cook 35-40 min. on medium heat, depending on how cooked you like the lentils and the consistency of the soup. Lastly, add one tea spoon of cumin and cayenne pepper for seasoning, if you like more add more. Your lentil soup is all done and ready to serve.

Again this is so easy that I don’t even know if this counts as cooking 😉 I hope you enjoy this recipe. Don’t forget to let me know, what you think about it.

Sending love your way,
