Tomato Lentil Soup Recipe

Red Lentil Tomato Soup Recipe

Lentils are a great source of protein and also help lower cholesterol. Red lentils are high in fiber, which, in combination with the protein they provide, keep you feeling fuller for longer. Make this healthy spin on classic tomato soup for a light dinner that won't leave you going to bed hungry.
