It’s the middle of summer and we’re in a heat wave so why am I cooking soup? Because Brian is not feeling well and can’t swallow hard food. I’ve made him all the smoothies he can stand so I’m moving over to warm and savory. I absolutely love this recipe because it is easy, healthy and delicious. It cooks for less than 1/2 hour so the house won’t get hot.
While I was making this soup last night Brian called out from the couch in our den and said something smelled really good. Honestly it smelled like I’d been slaving in the kitchen for hours.
This soup requires little prep and just one pot. Six ingredients plus some herbs are all you need to make this hearty soup. I use red lentils because they don’t require soaking and they cook faster than other types of lentils.
This comforting soup was just what the doctor ordered. I had two servings, Brian had one and there was plenty left for lunch the next day.
