I know that January is the month to detox and get your body back on track after the holidays, however this hasn’t been the case for me. There is actually a great reason – I haven’t felt like it. The shock to my system (both body and especially mind – HA!) would just be too much and I wasn’t ready. But now I have regulated my taste buds and I am ready to get back on track with some delicious and satisfying food. Yesterday I made this Creamy Vegetable Lentil Soup that is so good you would never guess there is no cream, is low in fat and super simple to make.
The ingredients for the soup are basic and I love that these are items I always have on hand. The soup starts with a chopped onion and carrots followed with a couple of cloves of garlic and some pantry staples. Even though there is no cream in the soup, it is made creamy by putting all the softened, caramelized veggies in the blender for a minute or two. The result is a velvety, delicious base for your soup. Add the lentils and you have a delicious meal that is protein packed as well.
If you have been having trouble getting back on track after the holidays (or anytime of the year) try this soup. Oh and I have to add that if your kiddos aren’t a fan of vegetables this is the perfect way to sneak in those healthy goods. Enjoy!
