Winter Veggie Soup

 Who doesn’t love a heart bowl of soup on a bone-chilling day?  Try this easy but delicious winter veggie soup.

If you have the base ingredients of some broth and red lentils on hand, it’s a snap.  Fill in with fresh veggies you have around.

If you are keeping fat low, saute your onions and garlic in some of the broth.  No problem!

We grow butternut squash in the garden and they store great in Johny’s shop which is usually around 45 F.

I stock up on tomatoes in glass jars (they leach the metals when they are in a cheap can).  Johny LOVES big whole tomato pieces in his soup!

Enjoy!
