The recipe-credit goes to the kind man who brought this soup for a pot luck at my husband’s work. Mr. Clark said this soup was too de-lish to not snatch the recipe and he was totally right! 😛
So, here are my two cents on this soup…
- It’s super filling. Guys, beans/lentils are so good for us! They are excellent in place of a meat and are full of protein and fiber. Over the years, we have come to LOVE beans and eat them more often than ever before. And the best part??? They’re cheap! So, if you’re looking for cheap meals, have them include beans. 🙂
- Very mild in flavor…sort of! Without adding in the cayenne pepper, this soup is mild and very kid-friendly. If your kids ask what those circle things are (lentils), tell them they are beans. They most likely won’t say another word. My husband and I love the kick from the cayenne pepper! I’d encourage you to make it without, and then add it to taste. That way you get the kick just how you like it!
- It only takes 20 minutes to prepare, and you can eat 30 minutes after that. Have you ever prepared something to then see you need to let it simmer for hour, then add the X, and simmer for another 2 hours? HA….this has definitely happened more than a couple of times for me. It’s fair to say, this soup and I are good friends. 😉
I hope you enjoy it as much as we have! I am super excited to hear how you like it because it’s a staple here!
