Servings: 1 jar (4 servings per jar)
Dry Soup Mix
- 1 cup red lentils
- 1 tsp garlic powder
- 1 tsp onion flakes
- 1 tsp curry powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp turmeric
- 1/2 tsp cumin
- 1 bouillon cube (chicken or vegetable)
Soup add ons
- 1 tbsp butter
- 2 carrots, chopped
- 2 celery stalks, chopped
- 2 cups boiling water (for bouillon cube)
- 1 can full fat coconut milk
- 1 cup chopped baby spinach
In medium-sized mason jars (I use the size you make jam in), add 1/2 cup lentils, then all the spices. Add the remaining 1/2 cup lentils. Add lid and set aside/give as a gift along with can of coconut milk.
To make a meal out of it, you can add veggies (instructions below). In a pinch, all you need is a can of coconut milk and the 2 cups of boiling water. However, I love adding extra veggies because it's super easy! Read below.
In a large pot, melt butter over med-high heat. Add carrots and celery, sauteing for 7-8 minutes until veggies are softened. Add boiling water to bouillon cube from jar and stir until dissolved. Add broth and coconut milk, bringing to a boil.
Add lentil soup mix and simmer for 20 minutes until lentils are fully cooked. Remove from heat and stir in spinach. Serve and enjoy! Soup also freezes well! Add to glass bowls, freeze and reheat in the microwave for 5-6 minutes.
