Curried Lentil Coconut Soup

I’m always searching for ways to get more lentils in me! They’re high in protein, iron, fiber, and B-vitamins so getchu some! Bonus: lentils require no overnight soaking or long cook times, especially these split lentils…

With that in mind I made this creamy coconut-y soup the other day and Hubs declared it “might be one of your best soups ever!” Thanks babe! So I had to share the recipe with you guys.

It’s an easy soup that works as a complete meal. I like to make a big pot and have it at-the-ready throughout the week for lunch.
