Healthy Lentil Soup

This healthy lentil soup is easy to make. It’s also light and tasty enough for warm weather, while still hardy enough to be comforting in the winter months!

You will enjoy this easy to make lentil soup throughout the year. It is so easy to sauté some fresh vegetables, then simmer with lentils, broth (I prefer homemade) and a can of tomatoes. This makes up a very healthy and inexpensive meal or appetizer before a special meal.
