Soup month as been fun! I’m wrapping it up with the save-the-best-for-last vegetable soup. This soup can be made vegetarian and gluten-free without jeopardizing the flavor or bite satisfaction.
I realize that vegetable soup may need some excitement to entice some people. This one has a smokey pancetta that gives an extra layer of flavor. It also has healthy lentils that jam-packed with flavor and vitamins.
The lentils and orzo pasta hide the fact that this is actually vegetable soup, even the little toddler was curious….but not fooled, she will love it some day.
If you’ve never had lentils and are looking for an easy way to try them – this soup is it! Without further ado, let’s get to it.
This soup freezes well –
Best result: if you freeze before adding in the pasta. Pasta has a tendency to soak up the liquid.
If you freeze with pasta: you can add water when you heat it up to serve.
