Carrot and Lentil Soup

SERVES: 4 | PREP TIME: 10 min | COOK TIME: 15 min

A quick soup recipe is a handy tool to prep ahead for the week so you always have a nourishing lunch or snack ready. This spicy soup is warming for cold afternoons, and packed with vibrant beta carotene from the carrots which can support your immune system. I love adding lentils to increase the protein content keeping you fuller for longer.
