Let me tell you a little bit about how this Healing Turmeric Lentil & Farro Soup saved my life.
Well, that’s being a bit dramatic I guess, but at the time, it truly was a lifesaver.
It was about 4 years ago. I had just given birth to my first baby girl, Zoe. She was a tiny little peanut, with an itty bitty cry, and the strength of a warrior. After about a week and a half of being home, I hit that wall as many first time parents do. I was EXHAUSTED. I was not one of those people who “loved the newborn phase”. I wish I was. I was just so damn tired.
We ended up hiring some part time help for a couple of weeks. This angel woman (who came from a recommendation), swooped into my house, got Zoe to sleep, and took care of me unlike I’ve ever been taken care of before. She made me nap, helped me with feeding, swaddling, bathing, you know, all the new stuff.
And she made me this soup.
You guys. I can’t even begin to tell you how this soup saved me. I was drowning, and this soup brought me back to life. I know, it sounds crazy. But it was just perfect. The timing and everything.
I’ve changed it up just a bit, to give it my own twist, but it’s packed with good for you, feel good foods. And of course, I had to top it with these garlic toasted breadcrumbs because they are everything!
So if you need a little pick me up, or just want a little taste of heaven, make this super easy, joyful, warm your heart soup.
It’s like a hug in a bowl.
