Green lentil soup

Soups - Dhal, vegan


Every season has it’s ups and downs. Autumn and Winter are for me especially hard, because here in Belgium it can get really depressing cold. In those circumstances, the best thing to have as breakfast/lunch or dinner is soup. A big bowl of creamy soup, and huge croutons. My kids love eating soup with croutons as much as pizza.
