I loved this soup as I could put lots of homegrown things into it - basil, tomatoes and swiss chard ! They were all in the freezer, having been picked over the summer. The soup was delicious and I loved the use of the lentils. I topped it with cheese and it made a perfect winter lunch. Made for ZWT8.
