Lentil soup

Lentil soup

As the weather is getting colder, there is nothing like having a big pot of soup on the fire. This is my version of lentil soup but feel free to play around with the vegetables you put in!

If you don’t have chicken or vegetable stock, you can use water, just be sure there is enough salt to bring out the flavor of the vegetables. Adding basil here is not for garnish, it is for flavor. The sharpness of the basil will pair well with the sweet and simple flavors of the soup.
