Hearty Lentil Casserole

I am trying to be more creative with the meals that I cook, using healthy recipes.

Today’s experiment was a vegetarian lentil soup, I got the recipe from my sister who has started cooking from the Revive Café cookbook edition 2 recently and raves about it.

This is a delicious recipe to keep you warm in the coming Winter months. I found the mixed herbs combined with tomato flavour absolutely amazing. I am looking forward to making this again with other combinations of vegetables as substitutions to create a  new dish.

I would love to hear how your version turns out.
