  1. Heat 2 tablespoons virgin olive oil in large soup pot over medium-low heat. Saute onions, shallots, garlic, and sweat until translucent and soft.
  2. Pour in 1-2 cups vegetable stock.
  3. Add sweated vegetables, yellow lentils, thyme, paprika, mushrooms and cooked rice. Add just enough stock to cover the surface of the contents of the soup (you can always add more stock later to thin down, if necessary!)
  4. Add in chickpeas and season with balsamic vinegar and salt and pepper.
  5. Bring soup to a low simmer and cook for 20-25 minutes. Remove bay leaves near the end.
  6. Using an immersion blender or hand blender, add coconut butter and milk, blend soup until smooth—you may need to do this in two batches depending on your size blender.
  7. Place soup back in pot and reheat to serve. Season and add a final splash of lemon.
  8. Garnish with fresh cilantro leaves.
