What’s for Dinner Tonight: Lentil Soup

Tonight Patrick made Giada de Laurentiis’s lentil soup
that’s right I have a husband that can cook.  (And he can make fudge, too.)
Giada’s soup was delicious.
I had to have 3 bowls (okay, so the second 2 bowls were only half filled, but still).
We came across this recipe when looking for inexpensive protein alternatives.
Lentils are a great option.  I love Giada, so we had to try this.
This yummy soup has carrots, celery, onions, garlic, diced tomatoes, chicken stock, pasta, thyme, and of course lentils.
A vegan version of this soup could easily be made by substituting the chicken stock for vegetable stock.  I sure it would equally as tasty.
My favorite part of the soup is the broth.  Next time, we will add more chicken stock or water (1-2 cups) to have more of the scrumptious broth.
The picture of the lentil soup was taken after we had eaten some, so the recipe really makes more!

You must try this one yourself!

(and in case you’re wondering, you can find Alton Brown’s chocolate fudge recipe here.  I’m going to have a piece of that now.)

Thanks for reading.  I hope you enjoy Giada’s soup as much as we did!
