Souper Weather ~ the little lioness

Souper Weather

We ended up using the contents of my Fruit and Veg box win for good, not evil (including banana and pears for snacking this week).

Roast Chook
A yummy roast chook for Sunday and Monday

And yummy, but less pretty Curry/lentil soup. See below the cut for what went into that one.

(ps only 3 more days to end to win The Purple Glitter Jesus Money Box. Jesus is currently in my fruit bowl.

  • 2 onions, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic (I used jar)
  • 4-5 bacon rashers, rind removed, roughly chopped
  • oil (about 2 tablespoons olive oil)
  • 3 potatoes, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 400g tin chopped tomatoes
  • 2 stalks celery, diced
  • 1 cup brown lentils
  • 1L beef stock
  • 1tbs curry powder
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Sautee garlic, onion and bacon in oil over low-med heat until onion soft.
  2. Add vegetables and tomato, heat through
  3. Stir in stock, curry powder, lentils
  4. Season with salt and pepper to taste
  5. Simmer for at least an hour – more if you have time. Top up the water as needed.
  6. Serve with awesome bread of choice.

    That soup looks awesome for the crockpot. Lentils or beans always cook really well in there. I’m going to give it a go in another month or so when it’s crockpot weather.

    As someone who’s been existing for the last little while on gelato and, before that, Paris patisserie treats, I honestly think that soup looks amazing. Dear heavens I need to eat something like that…

    That soup is a bowl-full of veggie goodness! It looks great and my husband would love the use of beef stock in that.
