Red lentils become mushy if cooked too long, so keep an eye on them.


Heat oil in a pot over medium-high. Add onions, ginger, garlic, curry powder, turmeric, coriander, and pepper flakes; cook until onions start to brown, 5 minutes.

Add broth and lentils, bring to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and cook until lentils are tender, 15–20 minutes.

Stir in coconut milk and chicken until heated through. Stir in spinach, cook until wilted, then stir in lime juice. Serve soup with serranos, scallions, and peanuts.
