This soup is ridiculously simple to make, and is delicious, comforting, and healthy. Red lentils are wonderful to use for quick soups because they’re cooked through in a matter of minutes.

Of course, you’re welcome to use homemade vegetable broth and hand-diced tomatoes, but in the interest of convenience and speed, I’ve used packaged versions of these ingredients.
