Soup weather

Of soup and love, the first is best.
0000000 Spanish Proverb
I've tried several different recipes for lentil soup but I always return to my old recipe from one of Frances Moore Lappé's cookbooks. Simple and tasty - what more can you ask for.
I think "Diet for a Small Planet" was published in 1971, at that time you were rather obsessed with proteins and the first half of the book deals with how to combine food to get all protein you need. But there are some good recipes and I have a few that I use quite often.

My darling who doesn't enjoy soup is not so happy with the winter weather. He has started to use the indoor facilities and complains a lot about the cold weather. Watching birds from the window seat is not as much fun as hunting so after a while he goes back to sleep.

  1. Your soup and bread look delicious. Just the job for cold weather. Here in Spain it's winter and we are now into soups. Beans and chick peas with chorizo sausage are very popular. In the summer tomato season, many are cooked down with garlic, herbs and oil into a puree and bottled, ready for the winter.

    I've been enjoying reading your blog again, thank you.
