I came up with this recipe when I was trying to decide what kind of soup I wanted to take to my mom for dinner after she had some medical tests done. I had made a lentil soup for us out of a mix and was trying to make a similar soup for mom and her husband. What I got was great and much better than the mix. Go figure!!

Ingredients Nutrition

This was fabulous and so easy to do and soooo tasty even teenagers ate it with gusto - they didn't know they were eating healthy lentils !! I dropped a punnet of cherry tomatoes in as I only had one can of diced tomatoes and also I love them In everything. I simmered mine for an hour or so and got a perfect chilli consistency.Thanks to LARavenscroft.
