This soup is chalk full of goodness! A whole bunch of superfoods in one bowl – the kale, lentils and cauliflower will keep you feeling satisfied and healthy!

Lentil, Swiss Chard and Veggie Yellow Curry

Carrot, Lentil and Ginger Soup
Roasting the carrots and onions brings out their natural sweetness and really enhances the flavour of the soup. I also snuck some lentils into the soup to add more protein and make it heartier!
Tomato, Lentil and Cabbage Soup
This is a hearty soup that I love on a cold winter night! Because this soup uses dried lentils, the salt is only added at the end – if you add it earlier, the lentils likely won’t soften – this also means if you are using a vegetable stock use a low sodium one.
Spiced Red Lentil and Herb Dip
This is a great dip to serve with pita or even tortilla chips. It’s really healthy, high in fibre and protein and very low in fat!
Classic Middle Eastern Lentil Soup
This is a recipe for the traditional Middle Eastern lentil soup. It is one of my favourite comfort food recipes! Full of lentils and veggies and flavoured with cumin and coriander seeds, just an overall delicious soup! Although I usually encourage you to season with salt throughout your cooking, in this recipe it is important to not add the salt until the very end. The reason is because I use dried lentils, and they will not soften if you add salt at the beginning!
Swiss Chard Stuffed with Lentils and Couscous
So delicious and fresh especially in the spring when local Swiss chard is in season!
Harvest Vegetable and Lentil Stew
This is comfort food at its best! Slow cooked lentils with cubes of hearty vegetables in a flavourful sauce! I like to serve a dish like this with basmati rice. Everyone can eat in a nice big bowl, a scoop of rice and then the stew tumbling all over it!

This soup is so hearty and delicious; you will make it again and again!
