What is this Detox Lentil Soup all about?
The idea of my detox lentil soup is to prepare a soup which is not only having tons of health benefits but which is also high in nutritious values. The Red Lentil soup, with all the gorgeous ingredients such as ginger and garlic, acts as a detoxifier and cleansing soup.
That way you can enjoy what some would call a wholesome fresh meal.
I think the importance here is that the soup is first of all tasty but also well balanced, not only in flavors but in ingredient nutrients.

Easy Ginger Coconut Detox Lentil Soup Recipe below:
- 1 Tablespoon Oil (*see Notes)
- 3 Green Onion Bulbs sliced
- 1 Tablespoon finely chopped fresh Ginger
- 2-3 cloves finely chopped Garlic
- 1-2 Tablespoons Thai Curry Paste
- 1 Tablespoon Chili Flakes
- 1 cup (160 grams or 5.64 ounces) dried split Masoor dal aka red Lentils
- 1 cup (200 milliliter or 6.7 fluid ounces) Coconut Milk
- 4 Cups (800 milliliter or 27 fluid ounces) Veg Broth
- Salt to Taste
- Juice of 1 Lime
- Fresh chopped Cilantro (Coriander)
- Fresh chopped Green Spring Onion Stalks
- Heat up a soup pot with cooking oil.
- Add in your sliced green onion bulbs, chopped ginger and garlic.
- Stir fry the content for a minute or two on higher heat until the ingredients soften.
- Add the Thai curry paste, as well as the chili flakes and stir-fry for another 2 minutes on a higher flame.
- Next, add the red lentils. I soak mine first for about 20 minutes before I start cooking so that the lentils cook faster.
- Pour in the coconut Milk as well as the veg broth and mix the whole contents well.
- Allow the soup to cook for about 15 minutes or until the lentils are cooked through.
- Season with salt to taste and pour in the lime juice. Mix well.
- Serve the detox lentil soup hot with freshly chopped cilantro and the cut green spring onion stalks.
2. For the broth use homemade veg broth if possible or gluten-free packet broth.
3. The Curry Paste can be a Thai yellow or red curry paste. You can substitute this with ½ Teaspoon Turmeric powder + ¼ Teaspoon Black pepper + ¼ Teaspoon red Chili powder, however, the taste won't be all the same. I recommend buying those small Thai curry paste sachets because they are cheap, are versatile and add so much flavor to various meals.
4. You can choose to add one tablespoon or two of the Thai curry paste to the soup. It depends how intensive you want the soup to taste.
