How to do Thai curry red lentil soup

Creamy soups are pretty hard to screw up, and this one is oh-so-simple:

  1. Sautee your onions.
  2. Add garlic, ginger and red curry paste, then stir up for 1 or so minute. This helps bring out the flavors of the curry paste as well as helps it soften and mix in properly.
  3. Add the rest of the veggies, the stock, some fish sauce, and lime juice. Simmer until everything is softened. This should take around 20 minutes.
  4. Bust out your immersion blender (this is the one I have) and blend everything until it is creamy and dreamy.
  5. Stir in the coconut milk some extra lime juice and salt. Adding some extra lime juice at the end really helps brighten the flavors of the soup!

How to store and serve this Thai soup

  1. This Thai soup makes for the perfect lunch. Not only is it filling (thank you lentils for that protein!), but it actually gets better after sitting overnight. This makes it absolutely perfect for a meal prep lunch!
  2. I love storing this soup in these meal mugs because you can reheat them right in the storage container. So convenient for packing soup in your lunch.
  3. This curried lentil soup also freezes like a dream! I like these freezer jars for soup, and you can freeze it for up to 3 months…in fact, I’ve frozen it for even longer with no issues.
  4. We serve this recipe with some crusty baguette but it is also great served with some soda crackers.
