When I get home from a trip I usually make soup, like this one-pot healthy soup lamb and herbs or others that you could find here. Soup gives a comforting feeling of home, and is not heavy on the stomach. Soups are especially great after traveling in the winter. December is one of our busiest time of year, and not because of the holidays (that too), but we somehow managed to crammed in our wedding 13 years ago, just a week from Christmas day. And a week after Christmas it’s new years, but before we take out the fireworks and welcome the new year, we squeeze in my husband’s birthday which just happens to be new years eve. Last year we ended up taking a business trip to New York, which lasted for four days and the following day we had a birthday/new years party at our house. O I hope you followed all that, and boy am I glad that all that celebring is over.
After all the parties and all the food, all I really needed was a bowl of fresh healthy soup ( and sleep).
All in one-pot healthy soup?
You bet-cha! No need for all extra pots and pans to make this lamb soup. It’s pretty much putting one thing after the next, and simmering for few hours, while you do all of your other tasks. We personally enjoy this healthy soup as a soup, but you could also add it on on mashed potatoes, rice, or quinoa, like a hearty meat gravy.
