Cozy veggies lentils soup

Here is a recipe that fits our gloomy and rainy weather perfectly. A delicious lentils soup with veggies and lots of spices to warm up and have fun too. 

You can add a lot of other veggies that you have laying around if you want to. It is the kind of recipe that is sort of a base that you can twist to your own taste and needs! Because tomatoes aren’t in season anymore, I used canned tomatoes!

  • 300g uncooked lentils
  • 100g snow peas
