Delicious Curry Soup to Keep You Warm

If you are feeling the chill in the air and have time to make a simple batch of soup this weekend, here’s one of our favorites.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, chopped
  • 1 rib celery, finely chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons curry powder
  • 6 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 1/2 cups dried lentils, washed and picked over
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 13.6-oz. can coconut milk
  • Chopped cilantro

Make It

Step 1

In a large pan, warm oil over medium heat. Cook onion, carrot and celery, stirring often, until softened, about 8 minutes. Add garlic; sauté for 1 to 2 minutes longer. Add curry powder; sauté for 2 minutes longer.

Step 2

Stir in broth, lentils, 2 tsp. salt and 1/2 tsp. pepper. Bring to a boil over high heat, cover pot, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until lentils are very soft, about 40 minutes. Remove from heat and let cool slightly. Working in batches, puree half of soup in a blender until nearly smooth. Return pureed soup to pan. Stir in coconut milk and reheat gently over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally; do not boil. Season with salt and pepper. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with chopped cilantro just before serving, if desired.
