It’s healthy, high in protein, low in fat, vegetarian and delicious. The lentils are meaty and substantial enough, filled with healthy fiber and vitamins, to fill you up. I add layers of flavors to create this wonderful warm healthy soup. Perfect for winter, especially if one of your goals is to slim down.
