Spring Lentil Soup

Welcoming Spring with a warm lentil and mushroom soup.  It was 50 degrees here in New Hampshire today, but the ground is still blanketed with snow.  In the early days of a new season, we are invited to lean in.  Transitioning is often more comfortable when we work with food to aide the shift.

So, a pot of beautiful Spring Lentil Soup is in order for our family table today.  Rich with immune supportive mushrooms, this soup could be had in the depth of winter (but I would make it thicker and more hearty with the addition of white beans).  

To make it:
Heat 1 Tablespoon of olive oil in a soup pot and saute~
1 large onion, minced
3 cloves garlic, peeled and minced
1 Tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander

Add ~
1 cup each diced celery and carrot
2 cups crimini or button mushrooms, minced
1 cup green lentils
6 cups vegetable or mushroom stock

Simmer until the lentils are tender and the broth is rich... about 45 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.

Serve with a salad.  On our table tonight -- torn Romaine and Kale with caramelized yellow beets and maple walnuts  -- its' about the most perfect pairing.

Warm Banana Bedtime Smoothie

This is just one of those comforting cups that makes the world a little better.  Truth.  It takes about 10 seconds to mix up, so there's no excuse for not giving it a go at the end of a busy day.  I whip it together about an hour before I want to hit the sack.  The ingredients work together to ease your transition into sleep.  It's a beautiful thing.  

Here's the WHY behind the ingredients:

❤️Banana contains an amino acid called tryptophan that helps raise serotonin levels. Serotonin helps to regulate sleep. Bananas also contain magnesium and potassium which are natural muscle relaxants.

❤️Blackstrap molasses contains sleep supportive calcium, magnesium and B-6. The high glucose content boosts higher tryptophan levels(supporting serotonin and making you feel tired.)

❤️Coconut milk contains healthy fat that help coax sound sleep by supporting satiety and balanced blood sugar.

❤️Turmeric reduces inflammation and supports brain, joint and liver health

❤️Ginger is a natural anti-inflammatory that can help relieve aches and pains. For sleep, it’s the melatonin content that seals the deal!

❤️Nutmeg is a natural relaxant in small doses.


Try it yourself:

Blend until smooth (and even a little warm, if you like)
1 peeled banana
1 Tablespoon Blackstrap Molasses
1 cup coconut milk
1 teaspoon ground turmeric or 1/2 inch piece of fresh turmeric root
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger or 1/4 inch piece of fresh, peeled ginger root
dash of ground nutmeg.
