Warm up to this red lentil and curry soup. Packed with fiber, protein and just enough heat to give it a bite.
1. Heat a large non-stick pan on medium heat. Coat pan with oil and cook onion until softened, about 7 minutes. Add garlic, ginger, curry, garam masala, red pepper and cayenne. Cook for two minutes.
2. Add lentils and stir for one minute. Then mix in the tomatoes, half the parsley, salt, pepper, 2 1/2 cups water, and the almond milk. Bring to boil, reduce heat and simmer for 20-25 minutes.
3. Sample and add additional salt and pepper to taste. Serve with the remaining parsley.
