Coconut, lentil and kale soup

I adore this soup and never realised that soy sauce with coconut milk would provide such a yummy result! If you are ever stuck with which legumes to use in a dish, lentils are great in that they don’t need soaking or pre cooking (handy!) and are equally as good as all other legumes in terms of healthy eating. Lentils are a great source of protein, fibre and powerful anti-oxidants.
