Lentil Soup Recipe

Opening the comfort food season with delicious lentil soup, another lentil vegan recipe from Armenian cuisine.

Have to confess, I enjoy this lentil soup anytime of the year, it tastes delicious even when served cold, the same or the next day.

Incredibly simple to make, and takes less than 40-45 minutes. I usually make a good amount of this soup. Set it in the fridge to enjoy for days. You can never have enough of this healthy goodness.
