I have made it quite a few times and every time it turns out great. It tastes fresh from the cilantro, sweet from the apples, and creamy from the coconut milk. I highly recommend it!
Chicken Lentil Curry Soup
Chop up the scallions, jalapeno, ginger, cilantro and garlic in food processor or blender until everything is in small pieces. Add in quartered apples while food processor is still running.
Toast the curry powder in a dry soup pot over medium-high heat, stirring, until fragrant, about 1-2 minutes. Whisk in the coconut milk and simmer for about 5 minutes. Add the apple-scallion mixture and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Cook until thickened, about 5 more minutes, stirring occasionally.
Rinse lentils under cool water. Add broth and lentils to soup pot. (Use veggie broth and omit chicken to make vegetarian.) Bring to a boil, then simmer until the lentils are soft, about 15 minutes. Add the chicken and cook until chicken is fully cooked, about 10 minutes depending on the size of the chicken pieces. If using precooked chicken, add chicken and cook until chicken is warmed. Serve with fresh cilantro. Heats up perfectly and also would freeze well!
It’s obvious that smoothies are a regular thing in my diet but sometimes I want to change it up from a super duper healthy smoothie to more of a sweet, kinda like a milkshake if I use my imagination smoothie. Enter the Almond Joy Smoothie!
Mix everything until well blended in high powered blender.
I was recently asked what brand of flavored yogurt is the healthiest. Which is a great question because the yogurt aisle can be a little overwhelming right now especially since and more and more brands are coming out with new “healthy” or “fit” versions. There is one brand that sticks out to me as one of the best and that is siggi’s. More protein than sugar and no crazy preservatives or artificial ingredients – sounds perfect but does it taste good? I say yes! The flavors are very subtle but I think they are delicious.
