One of the things that I love about lentil soup is that it’s filling and dense enough that you don’t feel the need to eat bread with it! I tend to use my healthy extra b option for breakfast and therefore can’t use it again at lunchtime. This is a really lovely stand-alone soup, full of speedy vegetables and very filling.
