  1. We love this soup! I made this for some sick, non vegan family and they said they felt better after eating this! I’ll be making this today??

  2. Simply delish! It has been a chilly spring here in Alaska and I’m suffering from a sinus infection. Made this soup last night and it was just what the doctor ordered! I doubled the recipe, added one can of coconut milk, and a teaspoon or so of curry powder. I felt better almost instantly!! Thank you! I’m having so much fun exploring your world:)

  3. I just sprouted some lenlits this week which would make them totally not work for this recipe. But I only did part of a bag, so I think I will make this with the leftovers. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thank you for your advice! I ended up precooking because I was too unsure. I didn’t have enough lentils so I used lentils and barley and the soup turned out great! And my husband was better in a few days and no one else got his cold. I’m making it again tonight we loved it so much! Thanks again!

  5. I’m going to be making this for my sickies this evening. No lima beans on hand but plenty of lentils. I’d like to cook them with the rest of the soup to make things easier– any ideas how to do that? I guess I’m looking for your mum’s recipe! 😉 Thanks!

    1. Hi Dawn, I hope I haven’t missed you in time for dinner! Normally, I soak and precook by beans and lentils. So when I want to use them they are ready. I would at least make sure that they have been soaked for a few hours first if they are dried. The cooking process will take much longer if you just add them in like that. I would say anywhere between 2-3 hrs of cooking (minimum). Hope that helps! 🙂

  6. This recipe sounds amazing. I am a huge fan of lime beans! Not only do they taste awesome, but their also highly alkalising, which is even better if you’re trying to boost your immune system. I will be making this over the weekend for sure. Just before spring comes around. Thank you for this amazing recipe! I love your recipes, they’re all great!
