Curried Red Lentil Soup

This is a super easy and delicious curry that the whole family will love! Except mine, my kids don’t like curry ūüôĀ , but because it is so easy and quick I am happy to make this for Bennett and I and then make¬†something else for the kids… I don’t usually do the 2 meal thing!

Give it a try and I’m sure you will love it and have it on the weekly Winter dinner menu…and its also great to heat up as leftovers for lunch, so make a double batch!
