This lentil soup is my mother's specialty! As you already know (since you have obviously read all my previous articles), I didn't eat any legumes when I became vegetarian ... It's with this delicious soup that I discovered lentils!
This recipe is perfect for my pre-busy meal prep * because you can freeze it easily!
* For those who don't know the joy of the firms, the pre-busy is the time of the year when I have to prepare my meals 4 months in advance, because I will not have time to live (and therefore no time to cook) afterwards.
Preparation: 15 min

5 cups (1.25 litres) vegetable broth
3/4 cup (180 ml) red lentils, dry and rinsed
