Nothing short of a meal in a bowl, the Vegetable, Tomato and Lentil Soup is bursting with the flavours of the many veggies it contains. Chopped tomatoes and a dash of ketchup give it a delectable tanginess, while lentils give it a luscious and satiating consistency and mouth-feel.

We have added cooked macaroni to this soup, not just to enhance the range of textures in it, but also to make it more satiating. You will find this to be a wholesome snack, which can also be enjoyed as a light meal on some days. Serve Cheesy Garlic Pull Apart French Bread .

This soup recipe is so unusual, it has vegetables, lentil as well as macaroni. I make this on a day when it is pouring or the weather is nice and chilly.
