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.

This is my first post for 2010, so happy new year everyone, I’m looking forward to sharing a year of foodie adventures, advice and camaraderie with all of you here and out in the rest of the foodie blogosphere. I have a few things up my sleeve for this year, the first of which will be in celebration of my third blogoversary later this week, so keep an eye out for a few non lunch posts.
In the interest of improving my lunch pictures I’ve taken to photographing my lunch in the morning before I go to work instead of at night when I actually pack it. So that I can take advantage of some natural light and not have to use the flash on my camera. Let me know what you think, any feedback you have would be really appreciated.
