Lentil and Veggie Soup

Dairy Free Gluten Free Nut Free Vegetarian

This perfect winter-warmer is a hearty family favourite. Lentils add protein and iron to this delicious veggie-packed soup. Pureeing the soup can make it far more appealing for younger children, babies or the fussy eaters in your family. This is the perfect weekend or take-to-school in a thermos meal to keep little tummies warm.
