This is the perfect time of year for some warm, hearty soup! I usually cater more towards spicy, cheesy, or tomato based soups, so I wanted to do something a little more low key, warm flavors, and earthy. Lentils has been my new thing lately and it has a ton of fiber and other great nutrients. Add, chard and chicken and you’ve got yourself a warm soup that’s perfect on cold nights. It truly comes across as a soup that helps comfort you when you have a cold. I hope you enjoy as much as I did!
