Curried Lentil Soup

I made this soup last weekend, and thank goodness I did because it was great for quick dinners throughout the week. The lentils make it nice and hearty, which was also great for week 2 of my cleanse. It had a mild spice using the amount of spices in the recipe, so add a couple more dashes of each spice if you want it spicier.

It is cold and rainy outside, the perfect day to have a big bowl of a healthy warming soup. Go make yourself a pot!
