*See: How to Use Coconut Oil in Baked Goods

“Swapping out butter for coconut oil is fairly straightforward for most recipes.

The main issue in the butter and coconut oil swap would be the fact that butter is a “water-in-oil emulsion” and is made up of butterfat, milk proteins and water. Coconut oil at the most will have a .1% total amount of H2O, and thus the way these two fats act in many recipes will vary. In order to mimic a more butter-like quality, try adding 1/2-1 teaspoon of water per 1/2 cup of coconut oil used in any recipe that usually requires butter.

If you think avoiding suspicious non-food ingredients and experimenting with a new, fun ingredient in baked goods sounds like a good idea, give coconut oil a try. Whether you use it in baking as a natural non-stick product or as a shortening and/or flavoring, coconut oil is an easy and very versatile product to use.” (Source.)

  • 1/4 cup virgin coconut oil
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 1 pound carrots, sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups red lentils, rinsed and drained
  • 2 teaspoon coriander
  • 2 teaspoons cumin

In a large stockpot or Dutch oven, heat the coconut oil over medium heat until hot then add the onions and carrots and sauté about 7 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add the red lentils, coriander and cumin, mixing well. Cook and stir for 1 minute.

Add the chicken broth and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer 20-25 minutes, or until the lentils and carrots are tender.

Remove the pot from the heat and cool slightly.

Puree the soup in the pot using an immersion blender or in batches in a food processor or blender.

If you did not use an immersion blender, return the processed soup to the pot. Stir in your milk of choice, season to taste with salt and pepper, and reheat gently to the desired serving temperature, being careful not to boil the soup.

Garnish each serving with a sprinkling of toasted coconut flakes or fresh minced parsley, if desired.

Note: The soup in the photo was made using whole milk and garnished with toasted coconut.
