Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 large sweet potato, diced
  • 3 carrots, diced
  • 3 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 teaspoon garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ginger, minced
  • One 15-ounce can coconut milk
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 1/2 cup dried brown lentils
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1/2 teaspoon coriander
  • Yogurt, for garnish
  • Sriracha, for garnish

Directions

Heat a pot over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. Cook the vegetables for about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and ginger, stir and cook for 2 minutes. Add the coconut milk, water, lentils, and spices.

Bring to just below a boil over medium-high heat and then reduce to low. Cover and simmer for 30 minutes. (Keep an eye on it and add a bit more water if necessary.) Remove from heat, allow to cool slightly, and blend the soup with an immersion blender to desired consistency or just serve as is. Garnish with yogurt and Sriracha.

Ginger Shopping Tip

Staples of Asian cuisine such as ginger, daikon, rice vinegar, and spicy chile sauces like Sriracha add bright, fresh flavors without lots of fuss.

Ginger Cooking Tip

Sriracha has good heat but also has flavor - its mild sweetness comes from sun-ripened chile peppers as well as sugar and garlic.
