About a year or so ago I signed up to a free newsletter from the website Simple Savings. One of their recent newsletters had the idea of doing a soup swap with friends which I thought was a great idea, especially now that it's getting pretty cold here! Luckily I have a few crafty friends who are also great cooks so at our craft morning last weekend we all brought along enough soup to share with each other. We all made enough for 8 adults, so by making one big pot of soup we got 3 delicious soups to enjoy plus the one we made.
The soups we swapped were a corn and bacon chowder, an Alison Holst creamy lentil and vegetable soup, a carrot, red lentil and kumara soup and a chorizo and lentil soup. Loving our lentils!
I made the chorizo and lentil one after seeing it on 'Good Morning' about a month ago. Here's the recipe if you like the sound of it... http://tvnz.co.nz/good-morning/nicola-s-spicy-sausage-lentil-soup-4145740.
Lentil and vege soup with cheese on toast-yum!
We're thinking of doing some more swaps too- maybe a casserole swap and a cookie swap too after seeing Sarah's awesome swap last christmas.
A good idea don't you think!
