This soup makes for great leftovers and can even be prepared in multiple ways. Sick of eating soup? Try eating the veggies and beans without the broth on top of a whole grain or corn tortilla for curry tacos or even adding the lentils and veggies to a big old salad. Weekdays can be busy, but there are no excuses for fast food when you have leftover lentil soup in the fridge!
