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.
For the oil use a wholesome virgin oil variety such as coconut cooking oil or olive oil
For the broth use homemade veg broth if possible or gluten-free packet broth.
The Curry Paste can be a Thai yellow or red curry paste. You can substitute this with 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric powder + 1/4 Teaspoon Black pepper + 1/4 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.
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.
