tested and loved: red lentil coconut soup

just yesterday i was saying that i don’t often bust out a recipe that requires more than two pans or that i have to grocery shop especially for. but this recipe from 100 cookbooks was on my pinterest board, calling to me, for months. so i finally made it and our mouths are so, so happy i did. it was easy. and delicious. best of all, lou loved it too! so i guess i’ll be adding coconut milk and tomato paste to my pantry staples and throwing this one into the rotation. i give it 4 out of a possible 5 stars in the “things that make me want to eat until my pants don’t fit” rating system i’ve been developing since I was 3. make it, you won’t be sorry. (ps- i added extra golden raisins, preferred it with about a 1/4 cup more than the recipe called for and substituted earth balance vegan butter for regular butter)
