    Shannon Cooks's Note:

    I threw this soup together the other night using only ingredients I had on hand. It was fabulous, fulfilling, and best of all, cheap to make. Serve with crusty bread and shredded cheddar on top.....and a glass of red wine and a movie! PS You can also add other vegetables to this soup: anything goes!!!

      5 thumbs up for a healthy, hearty soup! Everyone may not love this soup, but I did, especially with it being high in protein and sooo low in fat. It was also super easy to put together. I did add about a teaspoon of dried basil to enhance the tomato flavor. I used fire-roasted diced tomatoes and about 3/4 lb. of lentils (all I had), so I didn't need to add water. I will enjoy this for leftovers! Thanks for creating this, Shannon!
