Rich Lentil Soup – One Pot Super Meal

In Foodie Me by eva.katona@yahoo.comLeave a Comment

I love rich, hearty, almost stewy soups, without meat of course. I’m talking about the ones you could enjoy with a piece of crusty bread and some red wine on a cold day.

Spanish rice is one of my favourite side dishes: a lovely, warm mediterranean flavour which you can pair with a lot of otherwise bland food like grilled fish, fish fingers, veggie fritters and patties (or meats).

Winter time is soup time for me, I love all kinds of veggie loaded clear or creamy soups. They are also a great way to put more vegetables on the dinner table. Carrot is one of the vegetables we can still benefit from after the cooking process, because it’s easier for our bodies to take advantage of some of its protective …
