Quick Lentil Soup

Gluten Free, Soup2 Responses »

My early Christmas gift to you all this week is a super fast and tasty Lentil Soup.

I know everyone is crazy busy this time of year, and sometimes questions like “what’s for dinner?”

don’t hit the radar until after 6pm, right?

All you need is 1 bag of everyday grocery lentils, you probably have one that has been kicking around in your pantry for awhile.

1 jar of your favorite pasta sauce (I don’t judge), some bacon or prosciutto and finally a little parsley.

That’s it.

It takes 20 minutes to cook the lentils, in the meantime you crisp up the bacon, throw together a salad and set the table.

All in under 30 minutes, promise.

With all the super indulgent foods coming your way, perhaps a low-cal (except for a bit of bacon) comforting bowl of soup is in order.
