"1 pot, 1 hour = simple, incredibly tasty vegetarian meal. Truly a delightful change from ordinary lentil stew or soup. Make sure you have a hunk of great bread to sop up the stew juices or you'll end up using your fingers! Add a salad for a complete meal."

"Made this for the second time, 5 stars both time. It's such a versatile and easy recipe. Didn't have sweet potato this time so used 500g frozen mixed veggies, didn't have veggie stock this time so chicken stock (not concerned about vegetarian) and no red curry so threw in some chili powder, oh and didn't have fresh ginger so used powdered! So in other words I truly stretched the boundaries, and still it was great. Mopped with a batch and a half of recipe #16831, while Cyclone Tomas madly hurled himself at our windows. This is truly lovely, I could eat this once a week, it's so comforting and delicious. Love this recipe, really, really, really love it. EDITED TO ADD: Five days later and I'm making a triple batch to freeze in lunch sized portions. This is fabulous cold (it thickens up) eaten with celery spoons. Used lite coconut cream - tastes great!"
"Wow this is good! I've never had a vegetarian dish that was so filling before, and the flavor just gets better and better the longer it sits. The only change I made was doubling the amount of red curry paste, and it worked perfectly. Such a tasty stew with naan or a pita bread, I was I still had some more leftovers :)"
"I've made this three times now- always with the curry paste and twice with light coconut milk, and every time it's turned out amazing. The last time I actually ended up making it only to find out that my "sweet potato" was the wrong kind of potato completely! So I made it even without that and it was STILL fantastic! Fabulous, awesome recipe, I'll be in my cookbook forever now! It's so creamy and the texture and taste are absolutely perfect :)"
"Ok, not great, not terrible. Crusty bread was a great idea. Tasted kinda potato-ish, sweet potato soup. We cubed the sweet potato, the directions were unclear. Here's some conversions for non-Americans and from-scratchers: 1inch ginger=1tbls, 4oz lentils = ~3/4cups (closer to 1/2cup), 1can pumpkin = ~2cups (one small pumpkin pressure cooked for 15minutes)."
"I used Kabocha squash which was sweet and a perfect compliment to the stew. I served mine over rice and it was very good that way. Thanks, rsarahl. [Made for Zaar Alphabet Soup]"
"This was the hit of Thanksgiving dinner. Easy to make too. I had to send the recipe home with everyone. We made it without the Thai curry paste and substituted shallots for garlic. Yum! It was great cold or hot. Just writing about this soup makes me want some right now. Caution, it is filling."
"very nice. used vegy stock so it was all vegy. i followed the recipe pretty much except for using 2 yams."
"This is absolutely divine! Honestly, I could eat it every day! I used lite coconut milk and PAM instead of oil for the veggies and spices and it worked just fine. I was concerned the curry paste would be too hot for my kiddos, so I used curry powder instead. So delicious! I made it last night and I am going out today to get the ingredients to make it again today, so I can have it for lunch all week!"
"This was absolutly delicious.. Next time I will saute some shrimp and throw them in, ( though it is certianly yummy as is). Thanks for posting this"
"This was delicious! We had company over and served this soup with a simple salad and some potato latkes. Was a very balanced, filling soup."
"I LOVE LOVE LOVE this soup! I made the soup to take to my in-laws house for a football game and everyone raved about it! Each person had at least 3 bowls. (Good thing I doubled the recipe!) I served it with an onion / cheese foccacia bread I found here on Zaar also. The only thing I changed was to use 16 garlic cloves for the double batch (because we LOVE garlic). Thank you so much for sharing rSarahl!!!"
"I made this for Thanksgiving and it was a complete hit! I followed it right down except for adding some lemon juice in at the end. Thanks!"
"Nice rich flavor! I used light coconut milk and it was still fabulous. Perfectly seasoned and a beautiful texture. Hubby loved it,too!"
"This soup is very good. Couldn't find red curry paste so I used green, not sure if that would have affected the taste. It also needed salt; it was a bit bland without some salt to pull the flavors out. Regardless, we did enjoy this and I will most likely make again. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was delicious. I was skeptical because of the pumpkin it is turned out great. I used lite coconut milk to cut down on calories and used 6 oz of lentils to thicken it up. I packaged up six servings over rice, but I only got to eat it once because my non-vegetarian husband insisted on taking it every day last week. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!"
"A coworker showed me this recipe & it looked so good I tried it right away. It is AWESOME! From the other comments I've read on here, this is one of those recipes you can tweak a million different ways & it still comes out great.
I like a lot of zing in what I make, so I went for the full 2 tsp of cumin & used a whole 4oz tin of thai red curry. Fantastic! I also used chicken stock because it was all I had.
I will pass this along to anyone who loves big flavors - its one of the best I've ever come across!"
"This dish was really delicious; although, my stew did not thicken up as much as the recipe stated. I think if I make it again as a soup/stew, I will add more sweet potatoes and lentils. We actually ended up serving this dish over rice and we loved it. Served it with a salad - no bread since the rice and potatoes were enough carbs already. The only other change I made was to add salt and a little more cumin. Will definitely make this dish again. Thanks for the post!"
"This was a fantastic dish. I omitted the chili paste as I have young children, it was eaten up by all. I actually made it in my pressure cooker as I was pressed for time and it turned out great. Going to keep this one in the files for sure. Thanks."
"So creamy and thick, this is delicious. We chopped up the potato and doubled the thai curry paste but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. It's very forgiving. Next time I think I'm going to add a hint of red pepper to increase the spice a bit. My 15 month old loved it! (He likes savory foods!)"
"We just love this recipe! So flavorful and hearty. Used it for Thanksgiving this year."
