Blender carrot, ginger and lentil soup

BUDGET FRIENDLY AND DELICIOUS.

This nourishing carrot, ginger, and lentil soup is incredibly easy to make and comes together with a few simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry and fridge. With red lentils bulking it out, it’s really cheap to make and packed with plant-based protein and subtle spices that bring layers of warm and comforting flavour. The best part is, with this easy Vibe Blender soup recipe, you'll have a silky soup on the table in under 30 minutes. 

Blender carrot, ginger, and lentil soup is easily adaptable to accommodate your dietary considerations. It’s naturally vegan but you can use chicken stock in place of vegetable stock or switch the coconut milk for cream or yogurt. For a spicier version, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or chilli powder. This nutrient dense soup is hearty enough for a complete meal and is best paired with some crusty bread for dipping.
