Beginner Cook - Medium Cooking Time - Main Dish - Soup - Vegan - Vegetarian - Gluten-Free
As fall sets in and temperatures begin to drop, one can't help but get excited about soups. Our family enjoys a whole variety of them from spaghetti minestrone to seafood stew. When trying to choose which one to share first, I opted for my husband's favorite and one that even my young children enjoy, lentil soup. This dish is both healthy and hearty thanks to the lentils, which are rich in protein and fiber, and easily serves as a main meal. We love to eat the soup with a thick slice of homemade bread. Another option, if you want to keep the dish gluten-free or are looking to give it a southern twist, is to accompany it with cornbread.
