Easy red lentil soup

What I like is really easy, delicious and quick to make healthy food. I like the sensation of feeling nourished but also light and full of energy that comes with healthy meals, but I don’t like much of the fuss of complicated and long recipes and endless shopping list.

This soup is made with store cupboard ingredients

If you are like me, then you would love this super easy red lentil soup recipe that I made the other day with all the ingredients that I had in my dry store cupboard. It really doesn’t get easier than this.

What I like about this soup is that on top of being easy and delicious is is rich in proteins and quite low in carbs but at the same time makes you feel really full for a long time.

If you work from home you can easily make this soup, in the morning for example, to have a nice and healthy lunch or for a light and comforting meal, ideal if you have indulged a bit.
