Vegan Lentil Soup Recipe

I have an inner chill.
I was out running errands this morning in the freezing cold and failed to dress accordingly. I forgot my gloves, wore spring boots and a loosely knitted beret. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

My extremities were hurting and the only way I was going to get my body temperature back to normal was either by taking a shower (which I already had done) or drinking something hot. The desire to crawl back into bed was intense as I get sleepy when I’m cold, but I fought the urge and instead, made myself a green tea and a simple vegan lentil soup.

ingredients

I used the slow cooker function on my multi-function rice cooker and set the timer to one hour (update: a regular slow cooker/ crockpot will take longer to cook – approximately 4-5 hours) . However, you don’t need a slow cooker to make this soup – simmering it in a pot on a burner works just as well.

This vegan lentil soup is thick and very hearty. It’s also healthy (packed with protein and very high in vitamin A and C) and low in fat – something you won’t notice as you dig into it. It’s one of those dishes that’s really good for you but tastes like it shouldn’t be. The best of both worlds if you ask me!

lentil-in-pot

This vegan lentil soup keeps in the fridge for about 5-7 days. This means you can make a big pot of it on a sunday afternoon and take it to work as your lunch for a whole week!
