On today’s menu we have a quick, cheap and easy soup to make. There aren’t many ingredients, and they are all easily accessible during the whole year.

The soup is a nice mix of simple carbohydrates and complex carbohydrates, it offers lots of fiber, some protein, beta-carotene and other important vitamins and minerals. You can make it in advance and freeze it or keep it in the fridge for a few days.

Here are the basic ingredients;

red lentils

carrots

sweet potato

green chilli pepper

chives

water

yellow mustard seeds

salt+pepper

orange zest

Other ingredients which would make it even better; lemongrass, cilantro, parsley, cumin seeds

The basic recipe;

1-rinse and boil lentils

2-cut sweet potato into small cubes and add to boiling lentils

3-grate carrots

4-finely chop chives and chilli pepper. remove the membrane and seeds if you don’t like spicy food

5-toast mustard seeds

6- when lentils and potato are ready, combine the other ingredients, turn off the heat and enyoy!
