Turkey Lentil Soup

Soup is a perfect meal idea for cooler months, and a great way to get extra vegetables in your diet! This is a very simple recipe that doesn’t require a lot of prep, but yields enough to have large servings with leftovers (depending on your family size and appetite of course).

We’re always being told to “eat a rainbow” and this meal is a reflection of that…look at the colors here!

Other perks of this meal include it being low in sodium, high in protein, and a great source of iron and fiber…so dig in!

I served sweet potato wedges on the side, but you could easily add potato chunks, rice, noodles, or quinoa to this as well!
