Soups to me have a magic factor. The moment you start eating it, it warms you up inside and makes you feel cozy. It is a popular believe that soup can make anything better; “Una sopita lo cura todo”.
That is exactly what happens with this “Lentil Vegetable Soup”. The earthy flavors of the lentils and root vegetables make it so comforting but in case that’s not enough I’ll remind you that lentils are a great source of Iron, potassium, protein and Vitamin B. Did I mention delicious?
I made this lentils with carrots, celery, tomatoes, onions, garlic and lots of fresh Thyme for flavor and aroma. Yes, Please.
