Here’s a great #meatlessmonday meal for any of you Indian food fans. This coconut lime lentil soup is packed with flavor, and is hearty, nutritious, and delicious🙌🏻! I’m willing to bet you probably have all the ingredients already! I LOVED this soup. I’ll be honest- not all my kids are fans of lentils, but my pickiest eater, (my 5-year-old) surprised me when he asked for a second bowl.
