Coconut and Palantain Soup Recipe

So, I make stuff take pictures. When I get time, see what makes it past the cuts of what I want to put online. This soup is so good. I froze leftovers and it would taste better every time I defrosted and cooked another bowl.


1 tsp. Veggie oil
1/4-1/2 onion, diced
1 large bell pepper, chopped ( any sweet pepper will do)
1-2 large plantain, chopped (I used one and I thought it was not enough)
1/4-1/2 C. of shredded coconut (I used unsweetened, but is sweetened fine)
1/2 C. dry lentils
1 14 oz. can of coconut milk. (you could try another milk of choice, I have not tried it though)
4 C. of water
1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper
1 tsp. salt

Heat a medium pot to medium. Add oil and saute onions until soft. Add remaining ingredients. Cover and bring to a boil. Then reduce heat and simmer on low for 30-45 minutes with lid partially covered.
Serves 4-6
