Last night it was so cold, which is really unusual for Los Angeles. Normally people are pulling out their parkas and hats when it drops below 65, but last night it was New England cold. Luckily, I had a batch of this delicious hearty soup waiting for me in the freezer. It is one that I make often but haven't shared yet on the website. But after digging into again last night, I knew I had to share it. The soup is creamy, rich, and full of good for you veggies and lentils. Plus is only gets better after having a few days for the flavors to soak together. So whip up a big batch and freeze the leftovers for a quick meal on a cold night. You won't be sorry.

    Made this for dinner yesterday. From the comments above, I can only surmise that I did something wrong. While it was filling, it was very bland. Can I ask if anyone made changes to the recipe?

    Very flavorful and hearty without making me feel too weighed down or full after. Will definitely make again.
