Carrot + Red Lentil Soup with Warming Thai Spices

Preparation 10 min Cook Time 45 min Total Time 0:55

This hearty but super-healthy soup full of warming spices is perfect for the coldest of winter days. And like all my favorite soups these days, it couldn't be easier to make.


  • 2 pounds carrots, trimmed and diced
  • 1 medium yellow onion, diced
  • 1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and minced
  • 3 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 cup red lentils, rinsed
  • 1 heaping tablespoon Thai red curry paste
  • 8 cups good vegetable stock
  • 2/3 cup canned coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice


  • Combine all ingredients except the lime juice in a pot and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until carrots and lentils are tender, about 40 minutes.
  • Puree with an immersion blender or carefully in a regular blender until no carrot chunks remain but there's still some nice texture.
  • Stir in the lime juice, ladle into bowls, and serve.
