Vegan Coconut Curry Lentil Soup

Replacing the coconut milk with 1 cup of broth will result in a bright red soup with and a more pronounced tomato flavor Replacing the diced tomatoes with 1 cup of broth will result in a creamier soup with a stronger coconut flavor Replacing BOTH the coconut milk AND diced tomatoes with 2 cups of broth will result in a soup soup with a lighter consistency but more pronounced spices, because it won’t have the coconut milk or tomatoes to temper them
