As some of you may know, I usually have homemade soup in my fridge. It's easy to make, healthy and filling. I love having a bowl of soup for lunch, especially on busy days when I have to work at my desk. I like to make a pot that lasts for about 5 days or so.
Every once in a while, however, my whole week is busy. And that means I barely have time to make my pot of soup.
At those times, I rely on Bob's Red Mill Vegi Soup Mix. It contains green and yellow split peas, lentils, barley and whole grain pasta (shaped like alphabets). It's full of lots of good carbs, lots of protein and plenty of fiber! Perfect for a day like today, when I'm running, 'cause it'll get my body fueled.
If I have time, I add extras like diced carrots or onions. But if I'm in a hurry, I simply make it like this:
- 1 part soup mix
- 4 parts water or veggie broth
- sprinkle of dried minced onion
- sprinkle of dried celery flakes
Sometimes the simple things are the best.
