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.

Vegetarian Lentil Soup

vegetarian labelgluten free labelvegan labeldiabetic recipe


  • 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)


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.


  • 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 it won’t be 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.
