• Thick Veggie & Lentil Soup

    img_6709

    This soup is a meal, super thick and loaded with delicious veggies and lentils! I had a 2 bags each of cauliflower rice and riced broccoli and a box of mushrooms and some baby kale that I didn’t want to go to waste so I simply threw everything in a pot with some mirepoix, seasoning, broth and added precooked lentils to it! It literally was ready in a half hour, “soup” to nuts! What I love about soup is that it’s so easy to make.  I love making a huge batch, freeze it in individual containers and enjoy it for lunch or dinner all winter long!
