[Recipe] Easy peasy Dahl Soup


Legumes (or beans as they are usually called) aren’t the most popular ingredient in most canadian homes. Despite being high in protein and fibre and low in fat- they often need a little help in the flavor department to be a great substitute for meat. This recipe is a great introduction to lentils since it is tasty and super easy. Also- as a bonus- lentils are easier to digest than larger beans (like chickpeas) so you can expect fewer “side effects” from enjoying this recipe even if you aren’t a bean aficionado.

This recipe is part of my Wholesale Wholesome recipes because all the ingredients were found at my local wholesale store (i.e. Costco).
