While the calendar says SPRING tomorrow (!!) there’s still a nip in the air. If you’re in need of a warm-up, make a pot of hearty lentil soup.  We love this soup because you can basically dump everything into a soup pot, cover and cook and in about an hour and presto! Delicious soup! 

We love lentils because they are a very good source of cholesterol-lowering fiber which helps prevent heart disease and manage blood-sugar. Lentils also provide B vitamins and protein—all with virtually no fat. The calorie cost of all this nutrition? Just 230 calories for a whole cup of cooked lentils.

This tiny nutritional giant fills you up—not out.


    • Good question, Beth. Add the canned (or Trader Joe’s vacuum packed) lentils in the last step, along with the vinegar. They just need to warm up and absorb the other delicious flavors. Enjoy!
