Hearty Lentil Soup

This divine lentil soup is a traditional family recipe passed down from my beautiful mum.  It was and still is my absolute favourite winter comfort food.

It also ticks so many boxes, being gluten-free and vegan.  And the most important box it ticks is deliciousness.  It’s an incredibly wholesome recipe packed with iron, fibre and all the things our body needs to thrive.
