I love soup! Lentil Soup always left me a bit underwhelmed. Therefore I decided to create a new version by adding some more veggies. Next time I make it I will also add some chopped kale or spinach.

Enjoy!

Asparagus is a wonder-food! It is a great source of Vitamin K which is the vitamin that regulates blood clotting. However, if you are on a blood-thinning medication, it is advisable to check with your health-care provider to make sure asparagus is on your approved list.

In addition, asparagus is a great natural diuretic, nourishes the digestive tract, is a good source of fiber plus is considered an anti-inflammatory food with the extra bonus of being an antioxidant. All in all, this food should be showing up on your table a few times a month!

This dish comes together rather quickly…the risotto needs to be slow-cooked so try not to rush it!

ENJOY!

I have always loved split pea soup and this version adds a few more spices than the normal, somewhat bland, version.

Try serving it with a generous portion of crusty french bread or alongside a kale salad. Green + Green helps keep you healthy!

If you want an even hardier soup, try adding a large, diced potato with the split peas or 1/4 cup pearled barley during the last 25 to 35 minutes of cooking. (You may need to add some additional veggie broth if the soup is too thick.)

ENJOY!
