Spiced Courgette, Lentil & Coconut Soup

Spiced Courgette, Lentil & Coconut Soup hands down has to be our new favourite soup. If you’re a fan of coconut in all its forms and love courgettes, well look no further as those ingredients blend well together in this new recipe. Brought to us by Abel & Cole and their wonderful fresh and organic vegetables.

This soup feels voluptuous and fresh yet gives you that warmth we desperately need with those colder days upon us. Most importantly, because the lentils are a plant-based protein source, it will help fill you up and keep you satisfied for longer. A great meal option for vegetarians and vegans to get their protein.

And my tip as a nutritionist is: add some turmeric (with black pepper, of course) to make soup even more nourishing.

Courgette and coconut create a delicious and voluptuous mix!

What you'll need from your Abel & Cole box:

  • 3 courgettes
  • 1 onion
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 75g lentils
  • 1 tsp mild curry powder
  • 50g coconut cream
  • What you’ll need from home:

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 750ml boiling water
  • A large pan
  • A stick blender

What to do:

  1. Wash the fruit and veg.
  2. Trim the ends off the courgettes and dice into small pieces. Peel the onion and finely chop. Peel the garlic and crush or finely chop it.
  3. Pour 1 tbsp oil into a pan over a medium heat. Once hot, slide in the courgettes, onion and garlic. Sprinkle in 1 tbsp mild curry powder and a good pinch of salt and pepper. Fry for 5-6 mins, stirring occasionally, till the veg have softened.
  4. Tip the lentils into the pan and crumble in the coconut cream. Cover with 750ml boiling water and stir well to combine. Bring to the boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook gently for 20 mins, until the lentils are tender.
  5. Use a stick blender to whizz the veg into a smooth soup. No stick blender? No problem. Simply pour the veg and liquid (in batches if necessary) into a blender and blitz.
  6. Ladle the courgette and coconut soup into warm bowls and serve.
