When it’s freezing cold outside (and snowy as it is right now!), all I want is a bowl of filling soup… And this one hits the spot every time…. It is super tasty, filling, combines protein with slow release carbs, and is incredibly easy to make. Tick, tick, tick!

Often we make great choices at home, or even when at work, because we are making things ourselves. But eating out is a different ball game as you can't quite be sure what is in things (and who wants to be the person asking the waiter for the ingredients list and nutrient breakdown for each dish!)

This is an adaptation of a wonderful recipe I've pinched from my Mum. Full of delicious root vegetables and spices, but light enough for summer lunch or supper, it's so quick and easy to make. It keeps really well too, so why not double up the ingredients and freeze a batch?
