Family Meals under $3: Spicy Red Lentil & Carrot Soup
|December 10, 2012||Posted by under Family Dinners under $3, Food Recipes|
Another soup recipe made with ingredients I had on hand. So easy!
SPICY RED LENTIL & CARROT SOUP
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 tsp cumin seeds (do NOT use the powder, you have to use the seeds for this.)
1/2 tsp red chili flakes (use just a pinch if you don’t want it spicy)
3/4 cup red lentils
8 medium carrots (sliced in disks)
4 cups homemade vegetable broth
1/2 cup non-dairy yogurt or milk (*I used plain coconut yogurt)
Heat oil, then add cumin seeds and chili flakes and heat until they start getting fragrant and pop (about a minute or two). Add all other ingredients aside from yogurt. Cook on medium heat for about 20mins or until lentils and carrots are cooked. Blend with an immersion blender. Add salt to taste. Add yogurt and stir.
*I will definitely be using this coconut yogurt in soups as I find it makes it nice and creamy! I didn’t have any soy milk so I used this and was very happy with the results. Let me know if you use another type of yogurt.
