Coconut & Kale Soup


Coconut & Kale Soup For A Breast Cancer DietTo those of you who loves the taste (and smell!) of a coconut, together with those who loves kale, especially in its ‘soft’ version – this is the soup for you!

This soup is rich in protein, vitamins and minerals (thanks to the lentils and the kale – 2 of my favorite super foods).

What you need:

  • 1 tsp coconut oil
  • 2 minced garlic cloves
  • 1 diced onion
  • 3 diced celery stalks
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 & 1/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1/2 tsp smoked sweet paprika
  • 5 diced ripe tomatoes
  • 5 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup red lentils (rinsed and drained)
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 handfuls torn kale leavesWhat to do:

* Sauté the onion and garlic in the oil In a large pot for about 5-6 minutes over medium heat. Add the celery and sauté for couple more minutes.
* Add the spices and the bay leaves.
* Add the tomatoes, broth, and lentils. Stir well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and then simmer, uncovered, for about 20-25 minutes, until lentils are soft and ready.
* Add the kale.

When ready, remove the bay leaves from the dish.

Enjoy!

Neeva KedemAbout Neeva Kedem: Couple of years ago my life took a nice turn when I became vegan. It happened after my 40th birthday; I kind of realized that my health and energy are not as they used to be, and that change is needed. After reading lots of researches and studies, I understood that eating healthier food that is based on plants and natural ingredients will be the best for me, and so I did. It didn’t happen overnight; first, I gave up red meat. Then chicken, which was very hard for me. And only about a year later – cheese and eggs. Today I can say that being vegan improved my health and energy levels, and that I love being vegan!
