I have given a classic vegetarian soup a bit of a spicy twist, adding ginger, coriander, and curry powder. Blending only half the soup keeps the G.I. low and gives it texture.
1 Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan, add the ginger, allspice, cumin, chili powder, curry powder, and ground coriander. Cook over medium heat for 3 minutes.
2 Add the vegetables, stir to combine, and cook for another 8 minutes. Add the lentils and rice and stir in, before adding the broth. Bring to a boil and simmer for 30 minutes or until the vegetables are tender and the lentils have started to break down.
3 Blend half the soup in a blender or food processor until smooth. Return to the rest of the mixture, and add the coconut milk, lime juice, and cilantro. Heat through but do not let it boil again-this is important. Serve immediately.
