Tomato and red lentil Soupe

The tomato and red lentil soup is an ideal mid- week meal.

As it is a huge hit with my family as well as with the homeless people I have the pleasure to cook for via my parish, we now share their meal on the days I prepare the soup for them. Soup and sandwiches! The perfect combo!

Health benefits : Red lentils are low in calories, but rich in iron and foliate content and an excellent source of protein!
