How To Make The Best Homemade Lentil Soup

My easy lentil soup recipe uses half of a butternut squash for color & sweetness.

Dice the squash into bite-sized pieces and set aside.

Saute diced pancetta with celery, onions, carrots and leeks until the veg is soft.

Add the chopped butternut squash and saute, then add a bag of dried lentils to the pot.

Pour in the chicken or vegetable stock and simmer the soup until the beans are tender.

Add canned diced tomatoes to the lentil soup after it has simmered.

Stir fresh spinach leaves into the hot soup just before serving it.

This recipe makes a big pot of lentil and vegetable soup to feed the family.
