This lentil soup recipe has been my family's favorite, and when I finally learned to switch out regular diced tomatoes for fire roasted diced tomatoes, it was a game changer.

Lentils are a great source of protein and fiber, making this soup a hearty option if you want to meal prep for a busy week. I love switching around my proteins to make sure I get a variety in my diet, and I'm always excited when lentils come on rotation. It's a great meat replacement for many recipes if you're don't eat meat or are looking to eat less red meat.
