Lentil Soup

July 7, 2014

Some people aren’t sure how to use lentil or cook it. The best way we enjoy Lentil is by making lentil soup. Lentils are very nutritious. They are rich in dietary fiber, folate and iron. Best of all they are high in proteins. You can get a good serving of protein from a cup of lentil without any of the saturated fat and cholesterol you get from eating meat, poultry and fish. I love the fact that they are high in calcium, potassium and iron. This is a great meal for nursing mothers. Every time I had a baby and was breast feeding my mother and mother in law made sure I had my bowl of lentil soup daily. I like to make this with added potatoes. Through out the years I used to make it without then I had it once at my friends mothers house and I thought it was amazing so when I asked what the secret was she said a little potato and carrot does the trick. Ever since, I make it only this way. Oh please feel free to skip the rice as well. I do add that only because it makes it easier to feed the baby and my kids sort of got used to it.. Try feeding a baby soup! 🙂
