Using great ingredients is the best way to make a great soup!

What Are Lentils

Lentils are a delicious legume grown year-round across the world. They grow in tiny pods and have a half circular shape. At the store, you will usually find lentils dried. Because they are so small, you don’t need to worry about soaking them before you add them to lentil soup!

Lentils are many used in soups and stews, but they are also commonly used in salads and dips!

How To Make Lentil Soup

Probably the simplest soup you’ll ever make. All you need to do is combine everything except the peppers and onions, simmer for 20 minutes, then add in the remaining ingredients.
