Barley Lentil SoupPosted: October 28, 2011
When my friend Jana offered to come over for a visit and bring us homemade vegan soup, I said “Yes, please!”. Not only were we getting a visit with a good friend, but we were also getting fed. Win, win!
Let me tell you that Jana’s soup is EVERYTHING that is RIGHT in this world.
My photography skills are a work in progress and alas, I don’t have a picture that represents this soup in its finest form.
So I will describe it for you:
The soup is thick and hearty, almost like a stew. It’s full of all kinds of wonderful things like barley, lentils, carrots, onion, and celery, seasoned with bay leaves, a squeeze of lemon and dash of Bragg’s.
This soup tasted so good, that I found myself closing my eyes, rudely ignoring my guest, as I savoured every bite.
Picture yourself on a dreary Sunday afternoon, cuddled up on the couch with a soft blanket, wearing your comfiest sweatpants and sweater, reading a good book and drinking a cup of tea. And then someone comes and gives you a hug.
That’s what this soup tastes like: comfort in a bowl.
Thanks to Jana for the great soup and the wonderful visit.
