Red lentil soup | Quick and easy, hearty soup full of delicious flavors, with red lentils, sweet corn, bell peppers, green beans! Easy and quick recipe, vegetarian, vegan

Last week I’ve prepared this easy and quick red lentil soup for my family! With ingredients, I have in stock! I’ve used here a vegetable mix Mexican style with sweet corn, green beans, bell peppers, and onions and yes, red lentils!

Red lentils don’t have such a long cooking time like other lentils, so they’re perfect for soups or even for vegetarian sauces.

Junior loved this soup and so it comes on our meal planning list!

Although this soup is without meat it is full of proteins! Try it with you family! Obviously, you can use other vegetables with the lentils 😉 I only give you some inspirations! 😉

  2. Emmi, it’s been cold and damp here too, makes my bones hurt. Soup warms you from the inside out and it’s been on our menu too. This looks delish! And filling, my 2 must haves in a soup! Pinning!
