“we dance our madness,

we dance our joy.

oh precious ones, the fun has just begun,

wild music is in the air;

there’s beauty flowing everywhere.” –James Green

I never grew up eating ginger so sometimes I find it difficult adding it to my cooking. It has a strong flavour to it but added to the right foods it can make for mouth-watering meals!

One of my new favourite ways to eat ginger is in a lentil soup! The soup is super easy to make and so healthy for you. It also tastes amazing! I use a crock pot/slow cooker set on low for about 7 hours to cook everything together. I have mentioned the benefits of ginger for our health below the recipe.  Enjoy!!!

  1. In a crock pot combine all the ingredients together.
  2. 1 cup red lentils
  3. 4 cups water
  4. 1 green chilli chopped (optional as it is spicy!)
  5. 4-5 cloves of garlic
  6. 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
  7. Half an onion
  8. 2 tomatoes
  9. Himalayan pink salt and pepper
  10. Cook on low in a crock pot for about 7 hours.

You can eat the soup alone or add some organic brown rice or a bread of your choice.
