Red lentil and carrot cream soup (My magic soup) (Sopa cremosa de lentejas rojas con zanahorias)

In these Christmas times beautiful and crazy, 
(although I do not go out much I'm the one that I get to those who come to the house) a simple and delicious  soup recipe, and then we continue with the Christmas recipes.

I call it my magic soup, because of how rich it is, how fast it is made and how comforting it is. My daugther say  that also has many vitamins and is good. But I do it because  only I love it.
Is vegetarian too, have red lentils, carrots, spices, curry, some basil and zucchini,  :)

Adapted from : All recipes UK


250 grams red lentils (US 1 1/4 cup) (UK 9 oz)
3 medium carrots
2 green onions (roughly chopped)
2 garlic cloves (crushed)
2 tablespoons basil chopped.
2 teaspoon curry powder
2 medium zucchini peeled and in slices
1 teaspoon coriander powder
1.2 vegetable stock
vegetable oil
1/3 cup heavy cream or greek yogurt
salt and pepper


Heat some oil in a large saucepan over a medium heat. Gently fry  green chopped onions and crushed garlic with curry and coriander powders for 5 minutes.

Add carrots and zucchini  peeled and chopped into thin slices. 
Mix well and cook for  about 5 minutes.
If looks dry add some vegetable stock.
Add red lentils and vegetable stock. Seasoned with salt and pepper.
Bring to the boil, then reduce heat and cook covered under medium heat for 20 minutes until carrots and zucchini are cooked.
Add cream  and chopped basil and cook for 5 minutes.
Puree the soup with a blender.
Season to taste.
Serve warm with a dollop of heavy cream or yogurt and some coriander.

Hemos tenido unos dias rarísimos acá en Santiago . Algunos dias con calor otros con frio, En fin.
Que tal una sopita? despues viene todo lo que comemos en Navidad que es tan rico.
Esta sopa me encanta. Facil. deliciosa y maravillosa.
Las lentejas rojas tienen la gracia que no se remojan como las otras y se deshacen rapidamente. o sea uno la hace super rapido.
Me gusta en cualquier momento. No me gusta muy caliente ninguna sopa.
Para la noche es ideal.
