    Tish's Note:

    From start to finish, you can have lentil soup in less than 30 minutes. I have to say my daughter doesn't enjoy the mint and coconut in it so we serve hers without!

      This isn't all that soupy (I sort of expected as much), but I liked it just the same. I loved the flavor of the mint and the coconut and they went perfectly with the green onion. I added my tomato with the broth and lentils as we don't like uncooked tomato, but otherwise followed the recipe. Great exotic, but not too foreign flavors and I love the savory use of coconut and mint. I felt that there was a little something missing, but I couldn't quite place it. Maybe some fresh cilantro or some coconut milk or some lime juice? Not sure. But it was pretty good as-is!
