I am back, from out of space,…hihihi! Hey, my beloved friends! It is good to be back! I missed you all heeps! Thanks for the lovely big feedbacks I all received from you! xxx Much appreciated too! It was great to hear that I was missed! 😉

Now, I am back with great new recipes, ideas, etc! It is Autumn over here & that is my favorite Season of the year,.…I will start with this easy delicious Vegan, Gluten-Free curried swiss chard, lentil & chickpea soup! It is more a filling meal then just a soup! Ooh yes, I know that you all will love it too! 🙂 Promised!

Make this delicious one pot dinner soup now! 🙂

Recipe: For 6 big bowls of soup


2 big white onions, peeled & finely cut up

a fruity extra virgin olive oil (evoo )

1500 ml of a good organic vegan gluten-free hot stock

4 teaspoons of a good medium-hot curry powder

1 teaspoon of spiced smoked paprika powder ( Pimentón de la Vera, Picanté! ) or more to your liking!

1 x 400 gr can of rinsed, well-drained chickpeas

2 to 4 bunches of well-cleaned, drained Swiss chard, the tough stalks removed, the tender stems kept, cut up finely or into longer pieces ( 1,800 gr ), leaves cut up too

450 gr dried red lentils

some black pepper

To serve: some vegan baguette or vegan gluten-free bread , some vegan butter & some vegan yoghurt!


1. Take a large cooking pot & heat up on medium-high. When hot, add few drizzles of that fruity evoo & heat up. Add diced onions & fry for 2 minutes or so. Add curry powder & stir through the onions. Fry for about 2 minutes. Now, add smoked spiced paprika or more to your liking! 😉 Fry until golden & cooked through. Stir often. Now, add vegetable stock & Swiss chard stems & chopped leaves.

2. Now, add red lentils & chickpeas. Cook on higher heat for about 10 minutes or until the lentils are cooked & the chickpeas are warm. Taste. Check if the lentils are cooked & the soup must taste awesome! Adjust your seasoning if you need to. I added 15 grins of black pepper. Mix the soup only for 1/2. This way, you end up with a thicker soup & you still see veggies, chickpeas & lentils floating in your soup! Just the way, I like it! 🙂

3. Serve instantly with some crusty vegan French bread, some good vegan butter & dollop of  unsweetened vegan yoghurt on your soup! Enjoy with a loved one! 🙂 MMM,…:)
