Lentil-Vegetable Soup | Lunch

This soup is in regular rotation at our house, especially during the winter months

when the choice of fresh vegetables is limited. The vegetables you add can be

mixed and matched—I like the idea of adding a bit of thawed frozen vegetables

to help round out the ingredients. To make this soup soy-free, omit the soy sauce

and use a soy-free sauce or add some soy-free vegetable broth base or additional salt.
