We like to make a big pot of soup once a week (big!) with every vegetable we can find in it. And lentils and beans for protein. Sometimes we put in chicken or beef.
It's very healthy, vitaminful, fiberish, and totally fills you up. And cheap-cheap.
Each time we use different spices to change it up. My fav is Mexican with salsa and cilantro. Tomorrow I'm trying pizza soup. Sounds weird, I hope it's good.
I usually have it for lunch, sometimes also for dinner.
Goal? Slim, elegant, faux Parisienne!
