Red Lentil Soup

READY IN: 1hr 15mins
Recipe by ceilmary

From "A Beautiful Bowl of Soup"...just got this book from the library; haven't tried the recipes, but some of them look very tasty. I will probably modify them, but these are the actual ingredients from the original recipes.

Delicious and easy. I especially liked the lemon splash that added to the flavors. It made a lovely lunch with a whole wheat bun on the side. Made for PAC, Spring2014.
