Soup for Mending Hearts, Chilly Bones and Crappy Days!

Soup beautiful soup! Everything feels better when there’s a pot of nourishing homemade soup at hand. No thinking involved, no pressure, just a bowl of warm goodness…feeding your body and soul!

Start with 1 large onion, 2 carrots, 2 stalks of celery and 2-3 cloves of garlic! Chop and toss into heavy pot. Pour in 4 cups of Veggie Broth.
Then add 1 tin of chopped tomatoes, a tin of lentils rinsed and drained, and 3/4 cup of red lentils…
Secret ingredient!!!! 1 small parsnip grated. Shhhh.
Spices are 2 Bay Leaves, 1 Tbsp Coriander and 1 Tbsp Cumin and 1 Tbsp Curry powder
A big old squirt of Siracha!!! Cha Cha Cha
Simmer for 30 minutes and voila!!! Top with avocado or chopped cilantro, parsley etc or even grated cheese if you are into that! I should have wiped the edge of the bowl to make the photo prettier but hey, you get the gist. I guarantee that a bowl of this soup will chase away the blues and lift dark clouds …….at least temporarily!
Really these are just rough guidelines, you can add whatever you want to soup. Versatile and always perfect for the don’t feel like cooking but want something quick and good and tasty! x
