Lentil Soup (Fakes)

Lentil Soup (Fakes)

You won’t believe how easy it is to make this hearty and heart-warming lentil soup. This ancient dish is full of nutrition especially iron and fiber. It is a very delicious vegetarian soup that can be eaten in the cold winter months or even a nice crisp spring day, with nice toasted bread and a splash of olive oil.  During Lent, in my family we abstain from eating meat so we tend eat a lot of delicious Fakes.
