I tried my first real ramen in Japan last year and it was an experience – sitting around the bar overlooking the kitchen, in the traditional Japanese way. The vegan broth was filled with ramen noodles, tofu, spring onions, herbs and vegetables, and tasted amazing. I knew I had to try making my own ramen once I returned home.
I was sick last week, and basically lived off of fruits, vegetables and ginger until I started feeling better. Instead of taking medicine, I gave my body rest and healthy food and that was all it needed to fight the cold.
This lentil soup is another recipe for the colder fall days, which we have been getting quite a few of here in Germany in the past weeks. It’s pretty simple, yet nourishing and warming. Lentils should be one of the main foods of a vegan diet and soups like this one are a great way to incorporate them.
