Right now I’m all about soup. I’m currently fighting a serious case of the sniffles (they will not win) and this bright, healthy cauliflower lentil lemon soup is full of ‘all the good things’. Cold fighting things, like onion, garlic, lemon juice and spices. Not to mention tons of cauliflower goodness, carrots, celery and lentils, all blended together until smooth and delicious.
In addition to sniffle-fighting, I’m also in the process of stocking up my freezer with ski day meals. Lots and lots of them. Because, a hot thermos of homemade cauliflower soup, after a few hours freezing my pants off on the slopes, is magic. And, so, so much better than the soups they’re serving at the chalet, which are often ‘meh’ at best. As much as I detest spending the better part of my Friday evening preparing the next day’s lunches, I thank myself the next morning, when I can roll out of bed, dive into a coffee and see the lunch cooler packed and ready. My Friday-self is pretty awesome.
The deep freeze is also seeing some yummy chilli and stew action of late and I plan on making (and stashing) this rockin moroccan stew (from the Looneyspoons ladies) again very soon. It’s SO. GOOD. You should make it.
How do you manage meals and weekend activities? Especially in winter? Are you into big batch cooking and freezing or is cooking on the fly (or on the road)? Let me know in the comments below! And drop me a comment if you try out this soup!
