Lentil and Bean Veggie Soup

Fall is upon us; and its the perfect time to start making soups. Lentils are a staple in my every day diet. I decided to create this soup based on a bunch of leftover vegetables that I had in my fridge. Surprisingly (well not that surprised) this recipe turned out tasting fantastic.

Notes

I love eating soup with organic crackers ( I am a cracker freak); I have also just discovered these live.organic Garden Vegetable Cracker Chips that are to die for and add a little extra crunch to your soup.
