Coconut Curry Soup

This soup will get rid of your winter chill. It has just enough spice to warm your bones. I know I had a bit of scratch in my throat, and it was all gone after this soup. I always need a bit of spice to shake that feeling when I get too cold. The bite from the coconut and the creaminess of the lentils makes the perfect combination.
