Ingredients

  • 3 cups carrots
  • 4 cups cauliflower florets (half of one medium)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil (or oil of choice)
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 3 large garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 tablespoon fresh ginger, minced
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 4 cups vegetable broth, no added salt
  • 1/2 cup red lentils
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine grain sea salt, plus more to taste
  • 1 cup canned coconut milk, low-fat
  • Pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 400F.
  • Chop your carrots and cauliflower into bite-sized pieces and place on a baking sheet. Drizzle with 1 tablespoon of oil and sprinkle with salt. Roast for 25 minutes or until fork-tender.
  • Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Place the onions, garlic and ginger and cook for 5 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add the curry, cumin and salt and cook for an additional minute, then add the broth and lentils.
  • Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 15 minutes, covered.
  • When the vegetables are done roasting, transfer to a blender, along with the content of the saucepan and 1 cup of coconut milk. Blend until smooth. Alternatively, transfer the vegetables to the saucepan along with the other ingredients and coconut milk. Bend everything together using an immersion blender.
  • Bring the mixture back to the saucepan (if using the blender). Cook a few more minutes until heated through.
  • Taste and add salt and pepper to taste.
