Lentil and Vegetable Soup

Lentil and Vegetable Soup

I love fall cooking. Cold nights equal warm soups and fuzzy blankets. This is one of my favorite soups to make. This is the original, but I changed it a lot. Besides it being healthy, it just tastes SO GOOD. The lentils really melt in your mouth and the broth is so satisfying. I’ve already made a batch the other night, but I’m sure I”ll be making this throughout the winter as well.
