Broccoli Lentil Soup with Roasted Red Pepper Coulis

Well, now I know what a coulis is (a veg/fruit pureed sauce), and eating a soup with multiple layers and swirling options is always a good thing in my book. It's from VeganYumYum so there's no going wrong, really, and this a definite make-again recipe. 40 minutes from grocery bag to dinner table, I think? And shmancy/not-too-shmancy enough to make for a drop-in guest (all you need is roasted red pepper and broccoli). I feel nourished like a queen. :D

I also found out you can roast chestnuts in the microwave! I was all transfixed by the shells steaming open and the steamy/nutty/sweet meats that came out of the nuker-box. Even the burnt one tasted good!

you're right - you definitely CAN'T go wrong with one of Lolo's recipes - that soup is positively GORGEOUS, with the swirls. and you just made my day with sharing the fact that you can roast chestnuts in the microwave... how fun!! definitely takes less time than in the oven!! I love roasting squash in the microwave as well :0)

I learned a new word today! Coulis. :) I never had any idea that even existed.

And I agree with everyone else- the swirls are fantastic!
