Tomato and Ginger Soup

· Recipes

As the winter months start edging nearer, this delicious and nutritious soup will set you up for a cosy evening without the desire to binge on 'comfort' foods that are damaging to your body.

Make a huge batch and freeze it in individual portions to keep you going through the winter as you miss the sunshine and need a little TLC. This soup is great for increasing metabolism and improving circulation, so perfect for cold winter-y days.

The key to this soup is flavourful tomatoes. I recommend growing your own (it's seriously easy), although you should have done it before this time of year.

Make it a resolution to add to your calendar next year, and for now just start smelling the ones in the store.

Yes, really.

If you pick up a tomato and it has no smell, it also likely has no flavour. Look for the dark red, organic tomatoes that smell good.

You will need:

1 large punnet of tomatoes

1 cup of red lentils

1.5 cm of fresh ginger

1 onion

1 litre of water or stock

some coconut oil, butter or duck fat

3-5 drops Turmeric Essential Oil

Chop the onion and grate the ginger, then fry in a little coconut oil/fat of your choice.

Add the tomatoes, lentils and stock.

Cook on low for 30-45 minutes (you could use a slow cooker or instant pot) and then blend together to serve.

Feel free to add a little more ginger if you enjoy heat, or stir in some unpasteurised miso paste for a probiotic benefit!

I also like to add a drop of turmeric essential oil right at the end before serving for it's therapeutic benefits.
