Lentil Soup

by Steph

I know I have mentioned it before, but I really, really dislike winter. The only thing that makes it tolerable is the fact that I can eat soup.  With winter quickly coming to an end (Hurray!!) I decided to make some more soup while I still can.  This time, Lentil soup, its so satisfying and good for you.  I made a big pot, put it pre-portioned containers and put them in the freezer.  Now I have a warm, hearty satisfying meal anytime.  This recipe is 5 weight watchers points+ per 1 ¼ cup serving.
