It's blowing outside. Freezing actually!
And all I feel like doing is making a batch of soup and enjoying it with some sourdough rye bread. I used some butternut pumpkin (squash) and thickened it with some red lentils. It's spiced up with some fresh chili, garam masala and ground cumin. Enjoy your weekend everybody!

- 1 small freshly chopped chili
- a pinch of garam masala and ground cumin
