Lentil Soup Recipe

Since I’ve been eating mostly plant-based for a while now, I do look for foods that are still high in protein and lentils are a great option for plant-based protein.  I haven’t used them a ton, but I decided to make up my own lentil soup and it turned out great!  This is a fairly hearty soup so it really fills me up.  If you’re looking for a good lentil soup recipe, give this a try.
