Detoxifying Lentil Turmeric + Chili Soup (Vegan & Gluten Free)

I have been implementing more plant based eating into my family’s diet lately and that means cooking more from scratch. I love testing out new recipes and throwing together spices, herbs and vegetables to create nutrient dense meals. This soup is full of protein, vegetables and gut healing spices. While it may be a bit on the spicy side for most little ones, my husband definitely gobbles this up soon after I make it. You can freeze this soup to warm up for later as well which is great for quick and easy meals and lunches.
