I love cooking when the weather changes. I make simple stews, soups and casseroles mostly vegetarian, with the best organic ingredients!

This is one of my favorite simple recipes:

    Hi Lonneke,
    Thank you very much for this indian lentil soup recipe.
    Although lentils isn’t my favorite dish but I regulary eat it because of their iron content.
    I think I’ll try to make it because it seems very easy to make and honestly I buy canned lentils, I guess they are much less healthier than your indian lentil soup.
    Thank you again Lonneke.
