A Hearty Soup for Dinner

I adapted this vegan, gluten-free potato and lentil soup recipe from my grandmother in Germany. I always used to love this soup, especially with traditional sourdough bread and margarine.

What I also like about this recipe is that it is made out of simple ingredients: potatoes, red lentils, and carrots. Add just a few spices and vegetable broth, and you can create a delicious meal.

This soup tastes good fresh, and it freezes well, too. No leftovers have to go to waste—just enjoy your reheated soup on another day.

This hearty soup is delicious and filling.
