A bowl of this spicy, healthy gluten-free soup made a delicious lunch! As soon as I tasted it, I wanted to post it for you. Let me tell you how I discovered this wonderful treat…
… A few weeks ago my daughter-in-law sent some to me for lunch. But my son, who delivered it, couldn’t remember all of the ingredients, only that it was gluten-free. I enjoyed it and I wanted to learn how to make it.
Of course, I could tell that it had curry seasoning in it and I could taste the smoothness of the coconut milk. The cabbage, cauliflower, carrots and onion were obvious (yum!). But, there was a unique texture and flavor in it that I just couldn’t quite place.
When I found out later that the base was sprouted red lentils, I realized that they added a creamy texture and flavor to the soup that went far beyond what the coconut milk provided.
The soup is healthy in so many ways. It’s naturally gluten-free and can be made mostly from whole foods, except for the curry powder, turmeric and coconut milk – and they’re not far from whole foods.

With the temperature way below freezing here, and more snow on the way, a steaming bowl of nourishing, gluten-free soup really hits the spot! With that in mind, I’m sharing my 7 most popular soups of 2012. Cook up a pot for your family soon!
Here’s a picture of soup weather! It’s a view out of one of my kitchen windows this afternoon. You can’t actually see out the window very well because of the ice crystals.
A light, flavorful, yet filling bowl of homemade chicken soup fits a lot of descriptions. It’s nutritious. Comforting. Easy on the waistline. Not so well known is how easy it can be to make. Even gluten-free soup can be quick and easy.

Navy beans are one of our favorites here…well, especially Al’s favorites. He likes them with just about anything…in a salad, as part of a main dish or as a side in a main meal. He likes them in many combinations, but most of all, he likes them in soup.

Are you looking for a light soup for lunch that still has the fiber and protein to last you for hours? A few days ago I made this soup for lunch and found it lasted me well through the afternoon, even though it’s without noodles or rice. It was also soothing for a tender tummy when I was a little under the weather recently. There’s plenty of flavor without being overpowering.
