Another tasty soup was required to keep warm during the below zero weather. There were some tomatoes and tomato paste ready to use so this red lentil coconut tomato soup was the perfect solution. The soup has a great combination of spices and herbs (cilantro was used this time). Chopped yams were added to give the soup a little more chunky-ness. This soup definitely tasted like more.

This is a great recipe for a simple, quick dinner.
Cook rice however you prefer. While the rice is cooking, saute onions, peppers and any other veggies. Add additional veggies (yams / sweet potatoes or whatever is on hand…) Add curry spices, saute a little longer. Add coconut milk, bring to a boil and then reduce heat to simmer for 15 minutes or until veggies are cooked to your liking. Serve over rice!
