Simple Vegan Lentil Soup

Easy vegan lentil soup title image

I love family meals and insist on them every night…

But when I come in from a workout on a cold winter day I love to cuddle up on the couch with a nice bowl of steaming soup… So comforting!

On those days I want a soup that is full of flavor but doesn’t need to simmer for hours before it can be enjoyed.

This lentil soup is perfect!

It’s rich in flavor and hearty without being heavy… And it’s made from scratch and still ready in less than half an hour. How awesome is that!

If you’d like a little extra green nutrition you can add a couple of handfuls of fresh baby spinach just before serving and allow them to “wilt” so they are soft but retain all their freshness.
