Wintery & Warming

Lentil Soup Recipe

The cold, cold winter is around the corner and nothing says hygge and warmth better than a piping hot, robust and homemade lentil soup packed with flavor and healthy veggies.

When I am making soup I usually just use what I have in the fridge so if you have other veggies than mentioned in this recipe, be experimental and add those in instead.
