It seems like a very long time since I have done a cooking post!  I am actually pretty excited!

Fresh Tomato, Lentil and Onion Soup

First off, I LOVE looking at soup recipes.  Healthy ones.  This treasure came from a vegetarian cookbook. This is the time of year that I really crave soup.  Crisp temps, leaves falling, sweaters…..

Enjoy!  This was so easy and so filling!  Great when paired with a hearty red wine.  We had a Shiraz!

Happy Friday!
