Just now, I made this lovely gingered mixed vegetable soup with green lentils! This is a one pot dinner! I have a cold so I needed a comforting healthy soup with fresh ginger in it to bring me back at health! ;) MMM!
Step 1: Gather Your Ingredients!
Recipe: For a whole lot of soup
1 medium red onion, peeled & finely chopped
3 fat cloves of garlic, peeled & finely chopped
4 big carrots, peeled & chopped into rounds
1 x 7cm x 2 cm ginger, peeled & finely chopped
2 cups + 1/4 cup white cabbage leaves, cut up (210 gr )
100 gr green dried lentils that need 20 minutes of cooking (1/2 cup)
grins of black pepper
some Maldon sea salt
a fruity extra virgin olive oil
1500 ml hot vegan gluten-free stock
2 teaspoons couscous seasoning ( mine had a mix of of ground coriander seeds, cinnamon, black pepper, ginger, nutmeg & cayenne pepper in it! ) You need this in your spiced up soup! x
Step 2: Make Your Soup!
Take a large soup pot & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add some drizzles of that fruity evoo in it. Add chopped ginger, garlic & red onion. Fry for a few minutes. Add some 10 grins of black pepper & some pinches of sea salt. Stir often. Now, add chopped carrots, chopped white cabbage & green lentils. Stir fry everything round into the pot. Fry for about 5 minutes or so. Now, add 1500 ml of hot stock & boil for about 20 minutes until your lentils are just cooked through & your veggies are just tender. I added some 8 grins of black pepper, 2 teaspoons of dried couscous seasoning & some pinches of sea salt! It has to taste wonderful, very fragrant & at the end that ginger kick! ;)
Leave your soup to cool down a bit & serve at once with a loved one! I ate my soup, just like a great tasty one pot dinner! You really don't need the bread on the side! ;)
