“we dance our madness,

we dance our joy.

oh precious ones, the fun has just begun,

Wild music is in the air;

there’s beauty flowing everywhere.” –James Green

I never grew up eating ginger so sometimes I find it difficult adding it to my cooking. It has a strong flavor to it but added to the right foods it can make for mouth watering meals!

One of my new favorite ways to eat ginger is in a lentil soup! The soup is super easy to make and so healthy for you. It also tastes amazing! I use a pressure cooker to cook the lentils but you can also boil all the ingredients together in a pot. I have mentioned the benefits of ginger for our health below the recipe.  Enjoy!!!

  1. In a pressure cooker or pot combine all the ingredients together.
  2. 1 cup red lentils
  3. 4 cups water
  4. 1 green chili chopped
  5. 4-5 cloves of garlic
  6. 1 teaspoon chopped ginger
  7. salt and pepper
  8. Cooking in a pressure cooker cook on high until 2 whistles, then turn to low, wait for 2 more whistles then turn off. Open only when the lid pressure is gone.

You can eat the soup alone or add some organic brown rice to it.
