I’m delighted to share this recipe for Lamb, Vegetable and Lentil Soup with Cabbage from Simply Beef and Lamb with you today! Simply Beef and Lamb support both the Red Tractor Mark and the Quality Standard Mark for beef and lamb and if you visit their website you can find your nearest Quality Standard butcher. I’m helping to spread the word about their #LivePeasant campaign, encouraging home cooks to go back to basics and cook in a more rustic, simple way. One pot cooking is all part of this and as we all lead such busy hectic lives cooking all your meat and vegetables in one pot makes perfect sense!
I’ve never had lamb soup before but I have to say this recipe was a huge hit with the family, the men of the family went back for seconds and all bowls were mopped clean with the crusty bread! I love it when I can satisfy all tastes and everyone is happy so this soup will definitely be on my regular rota from now on!
I do hope you try this Lamb, Vegetable and Lentil Soup with Cabbage! Do you have any favourite one pot lamb dishes? Do let me know in the comments!
