This soup recipe was kind of an accident.
Here’s the story: I was up at my mom’s and planning on making Creamy Cauliflower Soup since I was still doing my 28 day reset with Jodi over at EatCleanHealth. But when I got there, ingredients she said she had (ahem, MOM.) like carrots and garlic, were missing in action. I assessed what I had on hand and started throwing stuff in the pot.
And man, it turned out GREAT. So good, in fact, my mom was drinking it straight from the bowl. Its a perfect balance of spicy and creamy, and the addition of the lentils gives it a nice bulk.
Can I just say it makes me freakishly happy when I improvise on a recipe and it turns out amazing. Like my mom says, make do. It’s great advice, and sometimes you really strike recipe gold!
Make a big pot of this nourishing lentil soup and you’ll be set for lunch for days!
