The Best Soup You’ll Ever Make ?

It’s February already, which in England means that statistically, it’s raining 60% of the month and the average temperature is a mere 5 degrees. So it’s cold,  it’s wet, and the lack of sunshine adds insult to injury! Amidst this gloom, what could be better than a piping hot, hearty home-made soup to defrost your cold body?! This fool-proof recipe is one of my absolute go-to dishes which is both homely and comforting, and delivers all the nutrients your body will need to fight the effects of winter. The lentils are a supreme source of vegetable protein, not to mention that it works out to be a mere 25p per serving, and even if you ‘luxe’ your soup, you’ll struggle to spend more than £1.00 per serving. Click more to discover how quick and easy this classic winters recipe is, and up your soup game today!

Lentils are somewhat of a ‘superfood’, if that’s not too much of an over-used phrase! They’re rich in soluble fibre, so they help to lower cholesterol, which means the arteries aren’t as clogged, and that in turn renders you less likely to suffer heart disease or stroke. They’re low calories (250 calories per 200g cooked cup of lentils), low in saturated fats, and are also low GI & carry a low glycemic load, so they won’t cause blood sugar spikes and troughs, which should keep you feeling fuller for longer.  Also, they’re one of the richest vegetable sources of protein, with almost 30% of their caloric content coming from protein. The other main benefit is that it’s pretty hard to cook them wrong, so for unpractised hands in the kitchen, you can’t go too far off course with these!
