Red Lentil & Quinoa Curry Soup

It is currently 12:50am Sunday night/Monday morning, and I am sitting in our futon bed, exhausted from working all weekend.  Exhausted, but blissful.  My love is sitting next to me, watching a movie.  Our dog, Arlo, is running around the apartment, doing who knows what.  I just finished sending out a coaching email, and I am excited to share a new soup recipe with you guys.

Red Lentil & Quinoa Curry Soup

I am half asleep, so I’m not going to give you a long post detailing how great this soup tastes, or how wonderful all of the ingredients are for you.  What I will say is, I love soup, I love curry, and this recipe combines them beautifully.  Oh, and curry is really good for you.

Red Lentil & Quinoa Curry Soup(serves 6)


  • 2 T coconut oil
  • 1 t cumin
  • 1 t turmeric
  • 1 T curry powder
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 T fresh ginger, minced
  • 6 cups veggie broth (or 6 cups water w/ veggie boullion)
  • 1 red bell pepper, diced
  • 2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup dry red lentils
  • 1/2 cup dry quinoa
  • cilantro as garnish


1.  Heat coconut oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the cumin, turmeric, and curry powder.  Let it cook for about a minute.

2.  Add the onion, garlic, and ginger to the pot, and saute for about 5 minutes, or until the onion is soft.

3.  Add the remaining ingredients, excluding the cilantro, and turn the heat up to high.  Bring to a boil, then reduce the heat, and let it simmer for about 20-25 minutes.

4.  Top with cilantro, and serve.
