Easy Lentil Soup
(vegetarian, good source of fibre, one-dish meal)
This hearty vegetarian soup is nutritious and bursting with warming flavours. Loaded with lentils, carrots, and sweet potato, and lightly seasoned with Indian-inspired spices. Made with basic pantry staples, this soup can be thrown together to create a healthy meal in just a few minutes.
Lentils are rich in fibre, iron, and folate and a great vegetarian source of protein. Like other beans and legumes, lentils contain complex carbohydrates broken down and digested more slowly, keeping you feeling full for longer. A diet rich in plant-based proteins is good for heart health and a more environmentally sustainable way of eating.
In other words, lentils are good for you and good for the planet. Enjoy!
