Nothing says comfort like a warm hearty bowl of lentil soup.
With the New Year upon us and trying to incorporate some healthier meals into dinnertime along with colder temperatures (at least here in NY) lentil soup is my rockstar. It’s comforting, hearty, filling and nutritious. Lentils really got it going on! 1 cup of lentils is jam-packed with 18 grams of protein they are high in fiber and low in fat. Throw in some basic veggies’ little veggie broth and seasoning and there you have it, the perfect bowl!
Lentil soup is also perfect if you have little ones. Lentils are a great source of protein for them as well and the lentils and veggies are a great mushy consistency if your babe is still waiting on some teeth to pop in. You could also throw everything in the food processor (remove bay leaf before blending) and blend it down even more if you’re not quite comfortable with the whole pieces yet.
