Turmeric Coconut Lentil Soup

The flavors in this good-for-you Coconut Lentil Soup are simply phenomenal. With turmeric, ginger, sweet potatoes, coconut milk, this is not your traditional lentil soup. It is creamy, sweet, fragrant, and above all super-nutritious. A must-try for the cold winter season.


  • 1 tablespoon olive oil - زيت زيتون
  • 1 small onion (chopped) - بصلة
  • 2 small garlic clove - فص ثوم
  • 2 teaspoon fresh ginger (grated) - جنزبيل
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric - كركم
  • 2 medium sweet potato (peeled & cubed) - بطاطا
  • 4 medium zucchini (sliced) - كوسة
  • 1 handful coriander - كزبرة
  • 2 medium carrots (chopped) - جزر
  • 1/2 cup yellow lentils (washed) - عدس أصفر
  • 3 cup water (750 ml) - ماء
  • 1 can coconut milk (400 ml) - لبن جوز الهند
  • sea salt (to taste) - ملح البحر
  • black pepper (to taste) - فلفل أسود

Step by step

  1. Heat olive oil and saute onions on low heat until soft (about 5 min). Add garlic, ginger and turmeric and sauté for another 2 minutes.
  2. Add chopped veggies, lentils and water and raise heat to medium high. When it comes to a boil, lower heat and leave to simmer until lentils are soft and veggies are cooked through (about 25 minutes).
  3. Add a can of coconut milk and fresh coriander. Blend the soup until smooth. Return to heat, taste and adjust salt and pepper. You may need to add a little extra boiling water (from the kettle) if the soup consistency is too thick. Serve warm.
