Gingered vegetable soup with green lentils!

on 03/02/2015

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!



Want to know, How I made it?

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


1. 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! 😉

2. Leave your soup to cool down a bit & serve at once with a loved one! I ate my soup, like this, see picture above. You can eat it with some good bread on the side, if you want but you really don’t need it at all! 🙂

    Lentils…one of the few things I absolutely dislike. Can I substitute them by something else?

    Yum, this is a perfect dish for this cold flu season. As is your cinnamon tea. Thank you so much for sending that recipe. I am no longer ill, but I immediately had to try it. It really is awesome. Such a gentle, soothing flavour. Unfortunately I could not leave my reaction on that post as it is closed for comments.
