This is an easy recipe to make for a busy weeknight dinner. Super healthy and rich in flavors, it also tastes great. I like having it with Jalapeno Bread, as it complements the soup very well. The best part of the soup is that you can flavor it with any seasoning. Tri-colored Sprouted Lentil Soup is the yummiest and healthiest vegetarian soup, made with dried sprouted lentils and vegetables and. This lentil soup doesn’t require a whole lot of ingredients and is easy to make. Soak Lentils: Soak lentils for 5 - 10 minutes and then rinse lentils really well in water. Which Lentils to use: Lentils are the main ingredient for making the recipe. You can add any lentils for making this recipe. I have made with red lentils, yellow lentils, green lentils, kidney beans and now with tri-colored sprouted lentils. Vegetables: You can add any number of vegetables to make it healthier. I have tried onions, celery, carrots, tomatoes, zucchini, spinach, etc. You can include more vegetables based on your taste and preferences. This soup usually lasts for a week in the refrigerator and for 2-3 months if you freeze it.
