Vegan Red Lentil Coconut Curry Soup

This was a quick throw together soup I made to take to a friend’s house when I invited myself over during lunch time. I made this during two minute increments while I had a needy baby, so it passes the easy test. I think the hardest part is chopping the kale, but I had bought pre-chopped (don’t tell anyone) and it was quick. I was surprised at how good it was because it was so easy. When my husband tried the few leftover bites he requested I make it again soon. I did, (once again on a needy baby day) with a different kind of curry paste, and it was still delicious. So, when you are looking for a quick, easy, delicious, satisfying meal to eat during a snow storm, or on a low-motivation/needy baby day, this will be the perfect thing.
