I’ve always loved the smell of Lemongrass, never quite knowing what it was. It’s useful for an endless amount of things, both health and wellness related, and for around your home. Lemongrass is the perfect addition to boost a boring old chicken soup recipe and turn it into something really flavorful! This was an experiment on my part, but it turned out absolutely divine!

The last month has been the ultimate test in making food stretch, and making meals that will last me for days. So, I’ve been making a lot of soup, and of course, the perfect company to soup is homemade crusty bread. Yes and amen. I did quite a bit of bread research online to try and find the perfect bread to accompany my endless pots of soup. I tested a few recipes over the last few weeks and have tweaked this one, which I think is perfect. This rosemary garlic bread is crusty on the outside, soft on the inside, delicious straight out of the oven, or toasted with butter. I used spelt flour + all purpose flour to make it a little more nutritious. I love to toast this bread and top it with a poached egg or mashed avocado. Sometimes I’ll even spread cream cheese and blackberry jam, because sweet + savory is my favorite! Shocking, I know, but I promise it’s good. Baking your own bread at home is so inexpensive and very simple to do. I hope you try this one for yourself!
With the weather changing and my schedule getting full, I’ve been craving warm comfort foods, and needing meals that can be stretched across a few days. Oh leftovers, here you are again, like a faithful friend. Beef Stew is a perfectly delicious and budget friendly meal that can be enjoyed with a group, or over the course of a few days (personally, I think it gets even tastier 1-2 days later, after all the herb flavors have bloomed). Altogether I got four large meals out of this one pot of soup. Woohoo! I truly hope you try this recipe and enjoy it as much as I did. I will definitely be making this again!
