This story, from the Washington Post, concerns one Reid Branson, a male nurse who takes care of AIDS patients at Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center. He makes himself a complicated lentil-spinach-squash-potato soup and eats it at work every day. Or almost every day.
We are assured the soup is delicious and nutritious and and tastes slightly different each time.
Branson’s routine is to make up eight days’ worth at a time, which he stores in glass jars. He is a vegetarian, age 63.
The recipe requires 18 ingredients and about three major cooking steps, about what one would normally put into a grand four-course meal.
You may wish to try it someday. Here is the recipe.
