On cold winter days, there’s nothing better to warm you than a piping hot bowl of nourishing soup.
This time of year I like to make soups and stews that are hearty and nourishing enough to be a meal. On cold days, there’s nothing better to warm you than a piping hot bowl of soup. When you need something wholesome and simple, this is the soup to make. Since lentils are high in fiber and protein, this soup will leave you feeling full and satisfied. Lentils are full of vitamins, yet low on calories so they’re a perfect option if you’re trying to watch your weight.
I often call this “healing” lentil soup because it’s my “go to” when I have a friend who is sick, healing from surgery, or even a broken heart and I want to bring over something comforting. It’s amazing what a homemade bowl of soup can do for you!
This soup freezes beautifully, so I often make a double batch. I usually will freeze soup in pint sized freezer zip top bags laid flat. This way they stack easily in the freezer and are super convenient to make lunch for one!
