  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1/4 cup chopped white onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped roma tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 cup dry green lentils (rinsed)
  • 3/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp crushed chili flakes
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (tetra pack)


  • Heat oil in your saucepan and add chopped onion to it. Then, saute it until onions are translucent.
  • Then add chopped tomatoes and thyme. Let it cook until tomatoes release its juice.
  • Then add lentils and saute for 1 minute. 
  • Thereafter, add cilantro and saute again for 30 seconds.
  • Next add vegetable broth and water. Cover and cook until lentils are soft and cooked properly.
  • Then pour the soup into a blender and blend in a crushed mode for only 1 second (do not over do this step).
  • Later,pour it into the saucepan again and warm it up if desired. Toss in salt and crushed chili flakes.
  • Lastly, stir in coconut milk and serve warm with bread.


  • Make sure to use rinsed and dry lentils for this soup. It tastes outstanding when lentils are cooked together with all the ingredients. 
  • If you plan to store it refrigerator for later use, lentil cilantro soup may thicken. In that case just add more vegetable broth while warming it up and adjust salt according to taste.
