Easy Vegan Lentil Soup

2-Easy Lentil Soup from Dear Handmade LifeI am a big soup fan. They are great on a cold evening. They use up a lot of our CSA (community supported agriculture) produce, especially if we have extra veggies to utilize! And soups are filling without adding on the pounds!
By chance, I made this super simple lentil soup that I served over the holidays and it was a hit! Prep time is only 10 minutes so this is perfect if you are busy. This is also a great soup to store or take to work and reheat in the microwave.
