Even though the weather is not super chilly here in So Cal, we still appreciate a warm soup. Maybe a reminder that where I’m from it’s 19 or so degrees out?
Regardless, this soup will warm the soul, help you get over a cold/flu or just keep you full and comfy. Lot of healthy stuff here. Lentils and brown rice for your protein/carb combo, as well as tofu or sausage (depending on your meat eating status), and of course veggies for added nutrients and fiber. As a bonus, you can make it one pot. Less dishes!
Red Lentil Soup with Balsamic Onions
You can check out the recipe here, from Fitness Magazine. The only changes made were adding tofu instead of sausage to my bowl. And, since we had Trader Joe’s boxed Corn bread mix on hand, Sean made some cornbread with corn nuggets inside. The perfect compliment.
