A hearty new take on an old classic that’s full of flavor and comes together quickly. Beyond the nutrient-rich tomatoes, cauliflower is also full of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, while the beans boost the fiber and provide quality protein. Really good leftover! As the soup warms at the end, make up a grilled cheese with arugula or spinach and Dijon mustard on rustic whole grain bread—a complete meal.
Red lentils are petite darlings that have a slightly sweet flavor, cook up in just 10 minutes, and serve up almost a beef burger’s-worth of protein. This is one of those recipes that seems too easy to offer much flavor. I made it before yoga one evening in about 20 minutes, turned off the heat, and came home to a delicious, healthy meal. At winter’s-end, we’re all a bit ‘soup weary’, but the lemon and baby kale make it refreshing as we anticipate the arrival of spring.
