  • Heat coconut oil in a large stock pot over medium heat. Add the onions and saute for about 4 minutes or until translucent. Add in the minced garlic. Saute for another minute.

  • Add in the turmeric, garam masala and sea salt. Stir for a minute or until spices are well mixed. Add in the cilantro, vegetable broth and diced tomatoes. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.

  • Add in the dry or soaked (see below) lentils, cover and cook for 15 to 20 minutes. Once the lentils are cooked through, add in the coconut milk. Stir well to mix, then add in the kale. Stir again until the kale is wilted. Turn off the heat. Ladle into bowls and enjoy!

Soaking Lentils
Reduce digestive problems by simply soaking the lentils in filtered water – up to 7 hours will do it.

Refrigerate in an airtight container for up to four days. Freeze for up to two months.

Additional Toppings
Top soup with chopped cilantro, sliced almonds and/or a dollop of coconut yogurt.
