Lentil Soup

Woohoo! You made it. Christmas was, we hope, a complete success and brought joy to you and your family. Now it's time to relax. You have exactly one week left of 2014, and it's time to coast into the New Year. We offer our humble, one-pot lentil soup as a wonderfully easy, nutritious, and satisfying dinner plan for tonight. It's absolutely delicious and fast to put together. Lentils are incredibly nutritious, making this soup a nice break from the excess of the last few weeks. If you want a little more from this soup, try adding shredded chicken, cooked farro, or long grain brown rice to make it a little heartier. Serve with crusty bread for a meal that is sure to satisfy and warm everyone to their toes.

      Please provide nutritional values for your recipes. How much protein per serving, fiber, etc., would be very helpful.

    I made this again and I forgot that the first time I realize that it’s too many lentils for the amount of liquid it doesn’t really make it soupy it’s more like cooked lentils so I added more water and I’ll be having the soup for weeks now but it is good!
