Bobby Bazini and Four Corners Lentil Soup

They go very well together. If you’ve never heard of Bobby Bazini, né Bobby Bazinet, google him. Bazinet is such a solid French Canadian last name… But I understand the need to be more marketable. He’s probably going to find himself in some weird situations now that his brother Kevin is an emerging talented musician. I can just see them at a party together and someone introducing Bobby Bazini and his brother Kevin Bazinet to someone. Confusing right? Maybe the best solution is for Kevin to become a Bazini.  The Bazini brothers … that has a nice ring to it, doesn’t it?

But about that soup though, the real hero of this post… Since I can’t seem to really help myself, I’ve taken the plunge and purchased yet another cookbook. This one is called My New Roots by Sarah Britton, an ex-pat ( Canadian) living in Copenhagen, Denmark. If you let the pictures in her book fool you, she appears to be living the perfectly charmed, dreamy life. She gets to make her healthy masterpieces in The Perfect Danish Kitchen.  She has access to exotic European ingredients (though her recipes are very accessible to all) and she has a beautifully photographed recipe book full of mouthwatering recipes… The ultimate charming cookbook.

I love that her book is divided into seasons and since it’s now January, I’m focusing on the winter section of her gorgeous and artfully constructed book. It may seem a little less intimidating that way since I only need to look at a quarter of the recipes in the  drool-worthy cookbook. So far I’ve made the roasted parsnips with pomegranate glaze and just now the four corners lentil soup. I have a feeling the soup is going to become a staple in our house.

For those of you following Weight Watchers, this is 8 smartPoints per 2 cups of soup. So filling!

The only thing I would do differently next time is have Matt chop the onions…
