    I love lentils! Your soup looks fantastic. Perfect for a chilly January day. If only my husband liked them as well. He eats them when I make things with them, but definitely not high on his list. 😉

    I was just talking about lentil soup with my daughter and that I should make some lentil soup. I did not know where to begin, having never made it before. Thank you for this recipe and what great timing! Visiting from Thursday Favorite Things!
