This is a quick soup that I make for my family that is healthy and filling. Lentils are really cheap to buy in bulk so they are a great frugal option. This soup has some of the main ingredients of the detoxing dish in India called Kitchari so you will get a cleansing effect also. My daughter was starting to get sick all day today and was nauseous with a mild fever. After she had a bowl of this soup she was back to her normal self.
