Lentil and Parsley Soup with crispy Pancetta

What I thought was an allergic reaction this morning , has developed into a full blown cold so I have called and moaned at everyone I know , made honey and lemon and now I thought I would share it with the world wide web

For that I need a recipe this is conforting and nutritious consisting of lentils and chopped fresh parsley this soup also has crispy pancetta which distributes itself through the soup for crispy yet chewy saltiness. You might want to reduce the garlic content but I find garlic a a good cure all . Whinge over.

    This looks delicious! Perfect for this sharp, cold weather too.

  2. What a wonderful idea for a soup!

    When we were little, my mom would mix honey and lime juice (limes are more common here then lemons) and make us have a couple of spoons of the mixture if we sneezed or coughed. :)

  3. Oh, do get well soon, Becky. Adding a bit of pancetta to the soup will probably make you feel better sooner. If not, give me a call– I’ve got lots of tissue in the bathroom and lemon and honey in the kitchen. :)
