Lentil Vegetable Soup is filled with healthy ingredients. If you need an easy vegan meal idea, this soup can serve as the main course, side dish or an appetizer!
The minute a chill hits the air, I am in the kitchen making soup.
While I would love this to happen all the time, the reality is that I usually don’t have time to bake bread or keep a pot of soup simmering on the stove for hours.
But I can make soup especially if it’s an easy recipe like this Lentil Vegetable Soup.
Total cooking and prep time for this meal is under 35 minutes. Thanks to frozen vegetables and a can of fire roasted tomatoes, this soup is as easy as pie.
And actually, I prefer to make it over pie, even though I love pumpkin or apple pie if someone else is making it for me.
Don’t sweat it either or you do not bake your own bread. There are plenty of loaves at the grocery store or bakery just waiting for you to take them home.
But please make sure to use red lentils in this recipe if you want your soup to cook quickly. Green and yellow lentils can be used but you will need some extra cooking time added to make this soup.
If you prefer not including a vegan meal in your diet, this soup would be great with some shredded cooked chicken or pre-cooked smoked sausage added at the end of cooking.
A bowl of this would also be a great way to start off a healthy dinner. I always make a double batch because a warm bowl of soup is perfect heated in the microwave for lunch.
To me, all soups are delicious and great comfort food. Enjoy!
