#BaptistHealthy Easy Eats: Lentil Soup

Having a few pantry staples can help you put together a few quick and comforting meals. These are items you should try to always have on hand, like canned tomatoes and tuna, so you create quick, easy and hearty meals for yourself and your family.

Lentils are one of those staple items. While dried lentils might seem a little intimidating if you’ve never cooked with them before, they’re actually one of the easier beans/legumes to prepare. You can use them to make a soup, add them to stews, make as veggie burgers and much more!

This recipe is a guide to get you started on how to make a lentil soup.  Below there are suggestions for items that you can substitute depending on what you have on hand!
