Organic Red Split Lentils Soup Recipe

This recipe is from the back of the red split lentil package I picked up at Aldi. I’ve been a huge fan of Aldi’s for over 20 years when I first discovered them as a new homeowner.  I swear every time I went shopping at Aldi all I could think was ‘If this was only in town when I was in college …. all the money I could have saved!’. Over the years Aldi USA has really upped its game when it comes to keeping with the food trends and providing specialty items.  Some of my favorites this past month have been a nice selection of organic grains and beans that I can use to make up my own soups and salad additions.

Spring Time Vegetables with Red Lentils

You can imagine what the house smells like after cutting up all these fresh veggies.  Always be sure to use fresh veggies available for that perfect recipe.  I can imagine adding some of the new colorful carrots to this dish.  Have you seen the purple carrots?
