I hadn't thought of using coconut milk, but that would be so good. I think coconut milk might just be one of my favorite things in life!!!

Mmmmmm! I've been in the mood for lentils lately. I'm definitely going to try this! I think I'll use tomatoes from our garden for the sauce (we barely got them in from the frost...). And I'll use coconut milk. Should be absolutely delicious!

So, I was a little skeptical when I first made this recipe, but oh my goodness is it good! And for about 175 calories a serving, who could complain?

Creamy Lentil Soup

1 TBSP OIL
1 CUP CHOPPED CARROTS
1 CUP CHOPPED ONION
4 CLOVES GARLIC, MINCED
1 CUP DRIED LENTILS
1/2 CUP RICE
1/2 TSP SALT
1/2 TSP CUMIN
1/2 TSP BLACK PEPPER
36 OZ BROTH, I USED CHICKEN (USE WHAT YOU HAVE)
8 OZ TOMATO SAUCE
2 CUPS MILK, I USED WHOLE MILK (THAT'S WHAT MY KIDS DRINK)

SAUTE CARROTS, ONION AND GARLIC IN OIL FOR A FEW MINUTES. ADD THE REST OF THE INGREDIENTS EXCEPT THE MILK AND SIMMER UNTIL LENTILS ARE SOFT, ABOUT 30-45 MINUTES. ADD MILK AND WARM THROUGH.

You could make this even lower calorie by using 1% or skim milk and by using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth. I found this recipe on a site that was supposed to be about eating very cheaply (is that a word? lol) The only thing I changed was I added garlic, which I love in everything, but it could certainly be left out. It is so good. You have to try it. I'd love to hear your feedback.

Be blessed!!
