Nothing better than a cozy warm filling soup during fall, and this one is a must!
Lentils are low in calories, rich in iron and folate and an excellent source of protein. They pack health-promoting polyphenols and may reduce several heart disease risk factors. They're easily cooked in 5–20 minutes.
1 tbsp of olive oil
2 cloves of farlic
Ashwagandha Powder (Reduce stress)
First you're gonna soak the lentils for 4 hours. This process is not required, although, the outer shell of lentils (and some beans) contains anti-nutrients that can interfere with digestion. The solution is to soak them, thereby neutralizing the anti-nutrients. Whereas larger beans sometimes require up to 24 hours of soaking, lentils are small enough that two to four hours should suffice
Sauté 3 cloves of chopped garlic on olive oil. Then add all ingredients, including seasoning and stir them for about 1 minute. Add 2 cups of vegetable broth and let it cook for about 45 min on low heat.
Serve it on a bowl and add a piece of whole grain toast as a side. Light a candle, set the table and enjoy it!
