Comforting Lentil Soup

Shelia Senghas


We love lentils at our house and eat them regularly. They are nutritious and this dish is great comfort food any time of year. I usually add Italian seasoning, however, today for lunch I decided to mix it up and I created a new and delicious Lentil soup that my husband and I loved. The combination of the ingredients I used meshed perfectly together and really upped the flavors. I will be making this many times over.
