Cozy up with a bowl of this golden, thick & hearty soup. It’s both nutrient dense and full of flavor!
To serve (optional)
Toast the curry: Heat a large dutch oven or pot (at least a 5 quarts) over medium heat, add the curry powder and toast for about 2 mins. The color will darken slightly and become fragrant. Add the olive oil, and give a good stir, letting the spices sizzle.
Saute: Next, add the onions, apple, garlic, cilantro and ginger, gently saute for 5 mins, stirring occasionally (things are really starting to smell good now!).
Simmer: Add the sweet potatoes, lentils, broth and milk, bring to a gentle boil, cover and reduce heat to low and let simmer for 20 minutes, sweet potatoes should be fork-tender and lentils soft.
Puree: Once done, let cool a few minutes and blend until smooth using an immersion blender. Stir in the lime juice (start with 1/2 lime), check for flavor, adding the remaining 1/2 lime juice, salt & pepper to taste. Add a tad more milk/water if you prefer a thinner soup.
Serve with chopped cilantro, red pepper flakes, and a drizzle of coconut cream. For extra brightness, add a squeeze of lime over top.
Serves 4 – 6
