This turmeric green lentil soup is super warming thanks to the spices, and also hearty and filling enough for dinner. It’s vegan friendly, zesty and oh so delicious. This is a particularly excellent soup to make during the week as it can be left to simmer while you get other things done! Plus, it reheats well too!

Part of the reason I think I’ve gone so gung-ho for soup this winter is because I love making them in my Le Creuset pot. It seriously is the best addition to my kitchen that has happened in a long time!
