Here is the popular Lentil Soup recipe from New Life Hiking Spa.  Lentils are super healthy!  They include beneficial nutrients like protein and fiber, minerals and vitamins.   They are very low in calories and contain just a trace of fat. One cup of cooked lentils only contains about 225 calories but will leave you feeling full and satisfied.  Our lentil soup is a delicious, nourishing, filling dish.  Enjoy!

 

Lentil Soup
1 cup dry lentils
4 cups water
1 summer squash, chopped fine
1 zucchini, chopped fine
2 stalks celery, chopped
1-2 carrots, chopped
1 small onion, chopped
1 tsp salt (or to taste)
1 bay leaf
3 tbs. red wine vinegar (optional)
Add lentils to water in a large pot. Simmer gently covered, for 1 hour. Add all other ingredients. Simmer uncovered until lentils are very soft. Add more water if needed, but soup should be thick. Serve hot. Serves 6.
