2ripeRoma Tomatoesfinely diced
2medium-sizedCelery Stalksfinely diced
1/2tspChili Flakes OR Chili Powder
2tbspFresh or Dried Parsley OR Coriander
Heat the Olive oil in a large pot. Once the oil is shimmering, add the chopped onion and fry till golden; about 3 minutes.
Add the seasoning and cook until fragrant while stirring constantly; about 30 seconds.
Pour in the diced tomatoes and cook for a few more minutes, stirring often, to avoid burning.
Add the carrots and celery and stir everything well for 2 minutes.
Rinse the lentils with water and add to the pot along with dried parsley or coriander, water, and coconut milk.
Raise heat and bring the mixture to a boil, then partially cover the pot and reduce the heat to maintain a gentle simmer. Cook for 30 to 35 minutes, or until the lentils are tender but still hold their shape.
Carefully transfer 1/4 of the soup to a blender, taking care to let the steam escape (cover escaping steam with a kitchen towel).
Blend till smooth and pour the puréed soup back into the pot. ENJOY!
