My favorite thing to eat when the weather is colder is soup. It makes a perfect meal, gives the kids all the right nutrients they need, it is comforting, plus it is easy for me.

Ingredients

  • 2 carrots, peeled and chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1 leek, (carefully washed) and greens removed and chopped
  • 6 cups of chicken or veggie stock ( or water works as well)
  • 1 1/2 cup of red lentils
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Salt and pepper

Directions

Sauté the carrots, leek, celery with 2 tbsp of olive oil for 5 minutes. Add the lentils, stock, bay leaf, 1 tsp of salt and 1/2 tsp of pepper. Bring to a boil, simmer and cook for 15 minutes until lentils are cooked through!

I added pieces of turkey bacon for my kids in their soup and they LOVED it!!!!
