Greek Lentil Soup

Greek Lentil Soup

This Greek Lentil Soup is more like a stew, a very easy and delicious vegetable stew , that is perfect for dinner for those cold winter nights. For this recipe we used green lentils but any other lentils would be great too. Lentils are a great source of soluble fiber which helps reduce blood cholesterol.
