Beefy Lentil Vegetable Soup

READY IN: 1hr 40mins
Recipe by Gingernut

I found this on another website and it has become a family favourite. It's easy, healthy, and freezes really well. What more could you ask for? The original recipe calls for a small tin of sliced mushrooms, but I find a lot of people don't like mushies, so I leave them out.

Tasty, filling and healthy. I actually used lean ground turkey breast and I was still very pleased with the results. I'll make this again. Thanx!
