Is lentil soup fattening?

Not sure what you put in your Lentil soup recipe to make it fattening but I would say no. Lentil is very beneficial. They are high I protein, fiber, nutrients, and vitamins. Lentils are known to be low in calories and contain almost no fat. One cup of lentils has about 230 calories and leave you quite full and satisfied after you eat them.

What kinds of lentils are best for soups

Most lentil soups recipes call for the same kinds of lentils. There are 5 types of lentils that are usually used: Brown Lentils, Green Lentils, Red Lentils, Yellow Lentils, and Black Lentils. Brown lentils are what’s most commonly used with soups unless you make crushed lentil soup then you go for the red or yellow lentils which cook much faster than the green, brown and black lentils.

Is Lentil Soup high in calories

Technically, No. The basic lentil soup recipe isn’t high in calories. A typical or traditional lentil soup recipe will have about 130-150 calories per cup. What you put on your lentil soup will determine how high the calorie content will be. Are you planning on adding a bit of rice? Some potatoes? some ground meat? Then yes that will boost the number of calories in your bowl or cup of lentil soup.
