It's supposed to be springtime here in Australia, but you wouldn't know it by the weather. Last night was so windy and wet and cold that I cooked us up a big batch of vegetable soup for dinner.
It's a winter staple in our house, but is always a big hit, and very easy to make. I really only lightly fry off any vegies I have with some onion and olive oil, add crushed tomatoes, vegetable stock, and some lentils, and let it simmer away for a while. We love it on a bed of brown rice and with a generous handful of fresh parmesan cheese, but you could always omit those - it's lovely on it's own, too.

I hope you're keeping well and warm, even through a colder-than-usual Spring.
