Lentil Soup

As much as I want it to be, it’s not snowing.

I know, I know… snow is a hassle and it makes it difficult to get around, but I really do like it. We’re going through unseasonably warm weather right now which is really putting a crimp in my seasonal cooking. I want soups and stews and it’s prit-near grilling weather out there.

What’s a boy to do?!?

Well, for one, I got another propane tank for the grill – and I made a pot of Lentil Soup. I’m covering all bases.

The soup was a clean-out-the-refrigerator-and-freezer soup. I had a ham bone and a couple of containers of frozen turkey stock and I had some carrots and celery that had seen better days – and about a third of a head of cauliflower I bought a couple of weeks ago. The cauliflower was huge – a real commitment – and I had cooked it for at least three meals – but still had a ton left over. I just cut it up and added it to the broth and then hit it with the immersion blender. No one knew it was there…

The end result was pretty good – and made all the better by the bread Victor made – a spin on his pepperoni bread. He took some nduja – a spicy salame spread – and peppers I had canned this summer and made one hellava spicy bread.

It was seriously good and was perfect for dunking into the soup!

So cold weather or not, we’re eating like it is – and loving it.

And I think there’s gelato for dessert…
