Warming Winter Soup And Bread

Warming Winter Soup And Bread

Bev Dunne
With winter comes the opportunity to cook up some warming, nutritious soups. I love soups, not just because they are so tasty, but because they are also so easy to make.  I don’t eat a lot of bread however I love a good bread to go with my soup.  Below is one of my favourite soups, together with a simple seeded bread which can be served with soup.  They are both extremely nutritious and extremely easy to make.

Ingredients: 2 tsp Organic Olive Oil oil,1 small onion diced, 300g sweet potato chopped, 1 cup Lotus Organic Red Lentils, 2 Naturata Vegetable Stock Cubes, 3 cups water. 

Directions: Cook onions in oil over medium heat until soft, add stock, sweet potato, lentils and water, simmer for 20 mins or until sweet potato and lentils are cooked. Blend mixture and serve with seedy nut bread.

A tip – lentils purchased from your local health food store seem, from my experience to be of a superior quality.  I find they cook up to a better texture.


Ingredients: 2 ½ cups Organic Road Rolled Oats; ¾ cup chopped Natural Road Almonds; 1/3 cup Natural Road Ground Linseeds; 1/3 cup Go Vita Psyllium Husks; 1 ½ cups Go Vita Omega 3 Seed Mix (chia, sunflower, linseeds and pepitas); 3 tbsp Go Vita Organic Black Chia Seeds; 1 ½ tsp Natural Road Fine Himalayan Salt; 1 tbsp Organic Road Maple Syrup; 2 ½ cups water.


Mix dry ingredients, before adding water and maple syrup. Stir until water is absorbed. Pour mixture into lined loaf tin, pressing mixture firmly into tin. Cover and let sit for 3 hours. Bake in preheated oven (180C) for 1 ½ hours. Remove bread and allow to sit, cooling for 2 hours. Slice thinly and toast, adding your favourite spread.
