This healthy and warming soup will fill the bellies of a hungry family in no time.
We love the versatility of soup as a standard meal on the weekly meal plan.
You can go to the fruit and veggie market and see what is in season (or on sale) and just go from there.
At the moment sweet potato is really tasty and affordable so we have been cooking this soup quite often.
Kids seem to love it too as the curry powder we use (Ayam’s) is rather sweet rather than spicy. Definitely worth tracking down if you can.
Lentils are a great store cupboard staple to have on hand. They add a protein hit as well as being full of fibre and Vitamin B. Not to mention they are very affordable too.
This soup freezes well, so why not freeze individual portions for lunches or for a night when you just don’t feel like cooking?
As part of the Summer Challenge we hope to make meal times even easier for you. We hope you like this recipe as much as we do.
