We’ve all come across the lentil salad trend, but this bay leaf sensation will warm you right up on a cold winters night. My grandmother used to cook this vegan meal during lent. Although, I didn’t appreciate it until I got older and developed a patriotic taste for it. This lentil soup is filled with iron, protein, and all that good stuff! Non-Greeks be warmed, this is not your average soup. I’ve had friends try it who get startled by the vinegary tang to start - but get addicted by the second spoon full! It truly gives off a unique, rich taste. Serve with some crusty bread. Or, give my alternative side a go and try it with mash potato!
