Recently Cape Town became one of a handful of cities worldwide to endorse a weekly meat-free day. I’ve blogged previously about the Meatless Monday movement and my strange mental block when it comes to creating a meat-free meal on a specific day of the week. So I’m happy to follow the City of Cape Town‘s example and enjoy a few random meatless days a week.
This simple vegetable soup is a great vegetarian option for your chosen meat-free day. Cubed celeriac, carrot and any other vegetable odds and ends you’d like to make use of, cooked with lentils in a vegetable stock and served with a generous spoon of flavoursome pesto.
