I think I gave myself a bit of a subconscious challenge last week when I mentioned that I'd be happy with soup for dinner almost every night of the week, because when I sat down to plan this week's menu, I found myself listing a soup for every evening meal. We started off the week with the Lively Up Yourself Lentil Soup from Heidi Swanson over at 101 Cookbooks.
I halved the recipe, resulting in 3 or 4 servings, and skipped the saffron yogurt topping since we didn't have any saffron on hand. I topped ours with diced avocado, a dollop of sour cream, and some homemade croutons. The soup comes together really quickly, and was a satisfying start to soup week!
