ok seriously... this is one of our family's favorite meals!!! 
red lentil soup is so delicious & nutritious (sorry, i had to). 
good protein in lentils.
we usually serve it up with a little fried pita (in coconut oil) & hummus. 
this soup is so filling so you don't need much for a meal 
& then there's always leftovers. yum!
