Hi Angels!!! Its nearly Christmas and its so busy, busy, busy!!! Schools over for the year (yay) and its time to get Chrissy presents sorted now, keep up with a somewhat fitness regime (though we rest up a little more over these holidays), doing anything we can for animals and just get some much needed r and r and lazy time in!!!
I really wanted to share though with you our new BAMBOOZLE BYE BYE FLUZLE Immunity soup that I made the other night when Pete was sick!!! Its full of everything good and bound to make you feel good!!
Here’s hoping you enjoy 🙂 Feedback always welcome as per usual.
STEP 1 – Gather your ingredients. For this I used 3 brown onions, 15 garlic cloves, 5 carrots, 3L of veggie stock, a palm size knob of ginger, 2 cups of green lentils, coconut oil, ground chilli, cayenne pepper, garlic salt, pepper and salt.
STEP 2 – Melt about a tsp. of coconut oil in your pot and sauté the 3 chopped brown onions, crushed garlic and peeled and chopped ginger for about 5 minutes. While doing this bring your green lentils to the boil in another pot and then let simmer for about 45 minutes to an hour until they are soft (but not turning to mush).
STEP 3 – Chop up your carrots and add to the pot and cook and stir for about 5 minutes.
STEP 4 – Add your 3L of stock and bring to boil and then let simmer for approx. 30 minutes until the carrots are soft. Using a stick blender, blend until smooth.
STEP 5 – Now is a great time to add your chilli and cayenne pepper. I added enough to personal taste (did not measure) so I recommend adding a little of both and taste testing until you find what you like. Remember, both ingredients are powerful so please be mindful about adding too much too soon. You can also add some garlic salt and salt and pepper now if you like.
STEP 6 – Drain and rinse your lentils and then add to the pot. Let simmer for another 5 minutes or so, adding any more spices if you wish.
Serve with some toasted bread and nut butter for a perfectly hot and satisfying immunity boost.
Enjoy this delicious soup in your favourite comfy clothes and snuggled up on the couch 🙂
Until next time smile, eat well and be kind to animals 🙂
