Easy One Pot Lentil Soup- Vegetarian

Updated: Nov 20

I have been converted . Fist time trying and making lentil soup. This lentil soup is loaded with flavor, nutritious and kid friendly. This soup is pretty affordable and perfect to make in the fall and winter mouth. Hardy but so fulfilling.The combination of brown lentils ,potatoes and portabella mushrooms is a winner. The soup is vegetarian and vegan.This nutritious, well-balanced soup counts as a meal if you enjoy a generous portion. Lentils are rich in protein, fiber, iron and folate. It’s one of my all-time favorites and has becomes a staple in your kitchen.
