    winkki's Note:

    Lentil soup isn't just for winter anymore! "Minestra Fredda di Lenticchie e Spinaci"...a chilled puree of lentil soup with spinach from The Lighter Side of Italy. You can use a rich veggie broth to make this a vegan soup, although you might want to increase the spices slightly if you do. (I tend to add a bit of rosemary) Best if made the day before so that the flavors can really mingle. Prep time does not include final chilling time. Keeps well in refrigerator for up to a week or in freezer for up to 3 months.

      Excellent!! Highly recommended. I did add salt and peper, and I didn't have spinach so I used kale. But htis is one I'll be making again for sure.
