Spring is technically around the corner, but it doesn’t feel it when you step outside! The chill factor is still high so soup remains one of the best meals to have either during or after a hectic day. This is packed full of protein; with simmering steak pieces, our delicious Boosting Beef Bone Broth and a selection of vegetables and lentils, it’s as tasty as it is easy to make.
