Red Lentil Coconut Soup is a warm, rich soup full of spice. Let this soup simmer on the stove and your house will smell wonderful. This soup makes a great freezer friendly meal that tastes just as good a month later.
On Monday I shared 43 Freezer Friendly Recipes plus tips for freezer cooking. This Red Lentil Coconut Soup is another recipe to add to the list. Lentils freeze very well and this soup tastes great months later.
One of my most popular recipes on A Cedar Spoon is the Moroccan Red Lentil Soup that I shared last year. It is one of my favorite soups to make because of the warm feeling I get, the health benefits it has, the fact I can freeze half for later and the way it makes my house smell! Today’s soup is no different!
Are you wondering what the health benefits of lentils are?
Here are just a few:
- Lowers cholesterol
- Heart healthy
- Stabilizes blood sugar
- Good source of protein
- Increases energy
The coconut milk in this recipe adds a sweet, unique flavor to the soup but is still subtle enough that the whole family will like it. My husband, who tends to be picky about new things, loved this soup. During these cold winter months we can all use a good bowl of soup to warm us up!
