As the temperature drops, soups become a staple in our home. Full bodied flavor, hearty and satisfying…that is the way we roll. Simple to prepare and budget friendly are also high on the list.
Since I am a northern transplant in the south, some things are new to my hubby to be. When we sat down for dinner last night to a bowl of this soup, it was met with the success of a mmmmmm, this is so good. Later he admitted that he never had Lentil Soup before, so the comments of approval were all the more sweet.
Try this out. I promise it is quick and easy and will be oh, so satisfying. I would love to hear your thoughts on it after you have a chance to make it yourself.
