This spicy lentil soup recipe, with its bit of garlic and the hit of curry is just delicious.

It is one of the most wonderful vegetarian soup recipes I have tasted.

Lentil soup is an quick and easy recipe that you can make for lunch or dinner any day of the week.

Ingredients

  • 1 onion, chopped
  • a little oil (about 2 teaspoons)
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • 1 tablespoon curry paste
  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils
  • 4 1/2 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons low fat Greek yogurt (optional - for serving)
  • chopped fresh coriander (optional - for serving)

Method

Step 1

Soften the onion in a little oil. Add the curry paste and stir well.

Step 2

Add the stock and lentils and bring to a boil. Simmer for 20-30 minutes until the lentils are well softened.

Step 3

To serve, mix the coriander into the yogurt, and add a portion to each bowl.

Variations:

  • The recipe calls for Greek yogurt, but if you can’t find that in your area, just substitute regular plain yogurt. Or omit the topping entirely.
  • If you prefer, you can use chicken stock instead of vegetable stock. Obviously then it is not a vegetarian recipe any longer.
  • If you are into hot and want to kick it up a notch, add a few drops of your favorite hot sauce.

This recipe is a bit higher in carbs than most diabetic recipes I recommend, but it is a whole meal in a bowl. You really don’t need anything else, except maybe a salad on the side, to make a great diabetic diet meal.

    Something Missing

    Originally submitted by Sylvie, Vancouver

    I really wanted to find a great soup as I am trying to increase my legume intake. This soup looked easy and it was, but it ended up extremely watery, perhaps there was an error? Even though I used less than it called for…Anyways, I ended up adding a whole container of cottage cheese and several cups of fresh spinach, a can of jalapenos and some balsamic and soy sauce, just to find some flavour and not waste all those peas. Extra garlic would not hurt either. I served it with a handful of cilantro, some pico de gallo and some cooked prawns, a feast.
