A little history about Lentil soup.
This lentil soup is often eaten by Catholics and Italian families during Lent (the vegetarian variety) is perfect for days of fast and abstinence. My grandmother often tossed in a handful of chopped kale to the pot as well. I’ve, over the years, adjusted the recipe for our personal preferences, but experiment. You seriously cannot go wrong !Print
