This pretty orange carrot soup is an ultra-frugal cold weather Trim Healthy Mama-friendly E meal! Meatless, and made with no special ingredients, red lentils and a garnish of 0% fat Greek yogurt provide the protein in this dish.
Something you may not know about me: I really dislike dried beans and lentils. I’ve tried to like them because they are so inexpensive and fantastic sources of protein, but I just couldn’t, and never thought I would, but this soup changed my mind. Blended up with vegetables, dried parsley, thyme, a bit of ground ginger, and chicken broth, I can’t even tell they’re in there!
This carrot soup is nutritional powerhouse, too; both carrots and onion are high in vitamin C, garlic is anti-inflammatory, ginger relieves nausea, and lentils help lower cholesterol and stabilize your blood sugar levels, making this meal a great choice if you’re feeling under the weather. You can even replace the tiny bit of butter with coconut or olive oil to have a dairy-free, gluten-free, nut-free, egg-free, sugar-free meal.
