Lentils are a wonderful source of protein and are so quick to cook, they are one of our favorite pantry staples. I also had some lightlife sausage to use the rest of, and TastyKitchen had recently posted a spicy lentil sausage soup. While this soup is not spicy in the least (the hubs and I have had to tone down the acid and spice as of late), it is hearty and flavorful.
This soup was wonderful for a pre-snow storm evening. And hearty enough to even satisfy the hubs while being vegan.
