When I'm super busy or have just finished a hectic day at work sometimes I just want something I can whip up in minimal effort. That's why I wanted to share this recipe for lentil soup, for those of you who are too tired to cook at the end of the day and just want an easy throw it together meal that will feed the masses for the rest of the week. This recipe is also great to cook ahead and freeze for lunches as it reheats beautifully.
