Gluten free and Vegan Lentil Red Pepper Soup

Hi, it's Jo from An Easy Gluten Free Life here and I have been struck by the lurgy this week. So I decided to try and kick it in the bottom - hard, by cramming as many superfoods as I could into my weeks meal plan. I honestly think that sometimes, there is just nothing better than a bowl of thick, warming soup when it's cold and rainy outside. Rich and flavoursome, this soup is so thick you won't need a lot to feel full but one portion provides a massive 50% of your RDA of Vitamin C among other wonderful vitamins and minerals. Serve piping hot with a spoon of natural yoghurt and a slice of artisan gluten free loaf.
