Coconut Curried Red Lentil Soup with Spinach

The red palm oil and red lentils give this soup a beautiful orange color. Feel free to use any greens you like such as spinach, collards, kale, mustard greens or even nettles.


  • 3 tbsp Organic Red Palm Oil
  • 1 tsp Cumin Seeds
  • 1 tsp Fennel Seeds
  • 1 tsp Chili Pepper Flakes
  • 1 cup Red Lentils (rinsed)
  • 1 cup Onions (coarsely chopped)
  • 5 cups Water
  • 1/2 cup (melted) Organic Coconut Manna
  • 1/4 tsp Turmeric
  • 2 tightly packed cups Spinach (coarsely chopped)
  • 1 tsp Sea Salt


  1. Heat the oil in a 6-quart stockpot over medium heat. Add the cumin seeds, fennel seeds, and chili pepper flakes. Fry for about a moment until the seeds begin to pop. Add the lentils, onions, water, manna and turmeric.
  2. Bring the ingredients to a boil; then reduce the heat to medium low. Simmer covered for about 15 minutes, or until the lentils soften and begin to melt.
  3. Stir in the greens and salt. Taste and adjust seasonings, if you like.
  4. Ladle the hot soup into bowls and serve.
