One of my favorite ways to use my cooking talents is to cook for my friends. I love sharing healthy dishes to inspire them to eat more balanced meals. Eating less meat has helped drastically with inflammation and digestion. For my friends, I prepared a fresh veggie and lentil stew. It has all fresh, veggies straight like swiss chard, arugula, fennel, and cabbage, and peppers. Mix in some spices and some veggie broth, and you have yourself a delicious, easy, healthy lentil stew.
Welcome to Chicago! Where the seasons don’t matter and mother nature is permanently on holiday. While we are in the midst of our second winter, I have been stirring up some delicious soups. All I want to do is stay warm and not go outside. I feel antsy if I don’t move around for too long, so I need something grounding to keep me relaxed throughout the cold months. Being all stirred up in my head can make it difficult to think at times. This soup recipe can be whipped up without a recipe.
