Method

Tip in the lentils, the vegetable stock and coconut milk and give everything a good stir. Bring to the boil, then turn the heat down and simmer for 15-18 mins until everything is tender.
  2. Using a hand blender or in a food processor, blitz until as smooth as you like. Season and serve scattered with roughly chopped coriander and some naan bread alongside.

Love this soup! So simple and quick and healthy!I put the full tblsp of turmeric instead of curry powder added a piece of ginger (thumb-sized, I'm female with small hands!) for heat as both turmeric and ginger are said to be natural anti-inflammatories (diagnosed recently with a rare form of arthritis). It was a bit earthy so I'll lessen the turmeric next time. Served it with 'toasted cumin flatbreads' (also slightly altered). A really quick and tasty lunch, this one is def staying in my binder!

Delicious and so easy to make. After reading other people's comments, I added a couple of red chillies, and may even add more next time. Great consistency, really satisfying and ideal for those cold winter days and nights ;-)

definatley needs more depth of flavour, I added 2 whole chilli's, garlic and lots more curry powder than stated, think I'll go for the hot curry powder next time.

A lovely soup and easy to make. I used sweet potato instead of carrot and it worked really well. Next time I would add more curry powder as the flavours didn't come through enough for my taste.

Just made this for lunch and it was so quick and easy. Tasted delicious served with warm crusty rolls. I wonder if the recipe needs to be more specific about the size or weight of squash which might account for the differences in texture (ie too thick / or not thick enough.) Mine was just right and I used a medium to large squash. Will definitely make this again. Perfect for cold winter days.

A very hearty soup on a dark winter day. I added some toasted cumin seeds and sauted some onion before i added the other ingredients. I will be making this again.

Very Good. Needed a little more water as it became very thick on blending. Have grown carrots and butternut squash in the garden and this is a great way of using the glut.
