This is our recreation of the super hearty spiced lentil soup from BOL. Our good friends at BOL have made the bold decision to go completely plant-based and this is one of the dishes from their delicious range of products.

It’s not quite summer yet, and we love a warming soup on a chilly, rainy day. It’s perfect for making in batch and enjoying throughout the week.

The red lentils in this dish give the soup a creamy texture and the spices work perfectly together to give it a kick on a cold day. This protein packed soup is ideal for a pre or post workout meal and the kale gives it an added protein punch, whilst also getting your greens in for the day.

We love this recipe with a side of freshly baked bread, but enjoy however you want! This soup is..

Warm

Comforting

Hearty

Flu fighting

100% plant based and vegan

We hope you enjoy this recipe! Next time you’re out on your lunch break and looking for something to eat, keep your eyes peeled for the wide range of amazing plant-based food from BOL.
