  • 5Servings


  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 4 carrots, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp minced ginger
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • 3 cups low-sodium 
vegetable stock
  • 1 cup red lentils, rinsed
  • 12/3 cups coconut milk
  • 1 lime, zested and juiced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • Fresh cilantro leaves, 
for garnish


  1. In a large stockpot over medium-high, heat oil. Add onions, celery and carrots. Sauté until onions are translucent, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add garlic, ginger, cumin and coriander and sauté until fragrant, about 2 minutes.
  3. Add stock and lentils. Bring to a simmer; cook for 10 minutes, until carrots are al dente and lentils are cooked.
  4. Stir in coconut milk, lime zest and juice and salt and return to a simmer. Once simmering, remove from heat. Serve hot, or let cool to store. If saving, fill 3 to 4 Mason jars with leftover soup, seal and place in the fridge for an easy, to-go lunch that can be quickly and safely microwaved. Garnish with cilantro leaves and serve with spelt bread.
