avourite acceptance speeches ever? I love how he starts slow and then the enthusiasm and realization of what just happened sinks in. Or James Cameron making one of the (allegedly) worst acceptance speeches ever? I guess calling yourself "King of the World" is never a good idea. On the drive home I rested my head on the shoulder of a cute guy and dreamt of a future together. We dated, we married and the rest is history. And somehow despite a busy household we have always found a way to keep seeing the movies and filling out the ballots at our annual Oscar party.
Until then, we will keep ourselves distracted from the cold by running out to movie theatres and warming up with comforting soup. It's a quick and easy one, that meets so many Kale Eats standards: healthy, vegan, gluten free, make ahead, high in protein, plus low calorie.. the list goes on. It's a winner in my books.
Moroccan Carrot and Lentil Soup
2 Tbsp coconut oil
1 leek, pale green and white parts only, thinly sliced
1 cup red lentils
1 clove garlic, minced
1 Tbsp cinnamon
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp group coriander
1/2 tsp turmeric
1/2 tsp cayenne
4 cups vegetable broth
In a large pot heat coconut oil over medium heat. Once melted add leeks and saute until softened and translucent, about 5-10 min. Add lentils, garlic and spices, stirring around until fragrant and lentils covered in oil and spices, about 2-3min. Add vegetable broth, carrots and sweet potato and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and allow to simmer until vegetables are softened. Allow to cool slightly and then puree with a blender in batches, until smooth. Enjoy!
