Curried Coconut Lentil Soup

by | Apr 4, 2023 | Recipes

This soup is a cozy bowl of gut-loving-goodness.  Lentils are a great prebiotic food and will help increase the population of beneficial bacteria in your gut.  It also contains sauerkraut, a probiotic food.  Adding probiotic foods to your diet is another source of beneficial bacteria.  Use as little or as much as you like.  If you don’t have sauerkraut you could also use kimchi or a dollop of plain yogurt.

The wonderful herbs and spices –  garlic, ginger, dill & turmeric all have anti-inflammatory and health supporting properties and come together in a subtle and delightful way.

For even greater benefit, consider making your own bone broth.Not only will it improve the flavour of your soup but it will also make it even better for you!
