As it gets colder and colder, I have been making a variation of classic red lentil soup that I read in a friend’s school anniversary cookbook-you never know from where your cooking inspiration will come so keep your eyes open! ¬†Lentils are filled with protein and they are inexpensive, ¬†delicious and easy to prepare. You can make it thinner or thicker, depending on your preference. Enjoy!
