Lentil soup may just be the most popular way to consume lentils. And that’s because lentil soup is an easy, protein-rich meal that satisfies hunger quickly. It is also economical, can be eaten with a simple vegetable broth or dressed up with spices, grains, vegetables, potatoes, and other legumes, and provides a slew of important vitamins and nutrients. Making lentil soup from scratch is certainly possible, and goodness knows there are a plethora of recipes to try. However, every once in a while, you will find that even after an hour of cooking your soup, your lentils are still hard as opposed to soft and tender, or on the other side of the spectrum, they have become too mushy. Frustrating to say the least.
Thankfully, there are tons of lentil soup products on the market today that make it super easy to whip up a hearty, healthy, and perfectly tender lentil soup in half the time it would take you to make it from scratch. Some are soup mixes that have gathered all of the materials for you, outline exactly how long to warm it, and come seasoned. And then there are even easier options like canned lentil soup or heat-and-serve boxed containers. What ever your lentil soup style is, there is sure to be one on the market for you.
