Very good! I will definitely make this again.

I have made this recipe twice now and both times it turned out amazing. The spices are so rich, it fills the house with a pleasing aroma. It is one of the most flavourable curries I have made yet.

It was good but not something to say wow!

It was okay - not sure I’ll make it again. I had to add a lot of salt and extra seasonings at the end to make it more flavorful. I also added more tomato paste at the end to thicken the soup more. I did use a can of lite coconut milk instead of full fat, which would’ve made it creamier.

Absolute amazing! For sure going to be in my rotation of favorite meals to cook!

Very flavourful. Added salt.

It was great! With basmatti rice.

Had to add more curry for a curry flavor, but that might have something to do with how I threw in 16 oz of mushrooms too. I also used fresh tomatoes instead of paste. Very tasty once I added more curry powder though!

this is fantastic. i used kashmiri chili powder instead of red pepper flakes, about two tsps. we like some heat in our house. i also chopped up some spinach, about three cups of leaves, and added them with the both and tomato paste. we will be putting this in our souper Sunday soup rotation.

My favorite easy curry soup! Super flavorful. I toss all the ingredients, except the coconut milk and cilantro, into the crockpot and cook it on low for about 10 Hours. (Usually overnight and I serve it for lunch.) Then I finish it off with the milk and garnish with cilantro.

Really good, left out the chilli flakes though

Very good soup. All the spices give it a rich flavor. Used lite coconut milk vs full coconut milk and probably should have used full to maybe would have given it a nice touch of sweetness.

It was a perfect pairing for a snow day. Just enough heat . Loved it !

I absolutely loved this, I don't even want to try any other recipes for green lentil soup! The spices and the coconut just pair very well together and it doesn't just taste of coconut like many other soups that use coconut milk in them. I definitely recommend trying this!
Madeline P. 3 Oct 2017
First time making this kind of soup and I absolutely loved it!! Making it again!
Nancy 28 May 2017
Yum! I used powdered ginger and omitted the pepper flakes will probably include the pepper flakes next time
Raquel McMinn 7 Dec 2016
This was great with some white rice. I cooked it for 20 minutes in my instant pot pressure cooker and it was delicious.
Emily 11 Sep 2016
My boyfriend went nuts for this soup. Very filling so don't eat too much if as an appetizer!! I would have brought either the coconut flavor or curry flavor forward a bit more but there is a great spicy bite on the back end, will definitely make again. Thanks for sharing the recipe!

This was amazing! I didn't have any gram masala but I added some cinnamon which was great! Win here! X

Really easy to make. I'd say servings are closer to 4, rather than 6. Left out the carrots because I find they make soups too sweet, but it worked well for me.
