Lentil soup recipes - 11 recipes

By JillG

During my time as a vegan (which came to an abrupt halt when I moved to Paris), I found lentil soup to be a savoir when I was tired or had an empty fridge. I could prepare it in advance, keep it in the freezer, and defrost it for an easy weeknight dinner. Of course, I couldn't leave it behind completely just because Paris is not particularly vegan-friendly (yet)! Along with my trusty minestone recipe, lentil soup makes frequent appearances in my kitchen! Did you know that lentils are packed with a mighty nutritional punch? Go ahead! Take them on!
