Vegan Coconut Lentil Soup

A great vegan lunch idea. We love it with a few spoonfuls of yogurt on top or you can use a non-dairy yogurt to keep it vegan (coconut yogurt adds a nice flavour to the mix!). Brilliant for bringing to work or just keeping you warm on those cold winter days.[/vc_wp_text][vc_separator][vc_column width=”1/3″][vc_wp_text]
