The Cheap And Easy Soup I Make Every Week In The Fall


Today we’re making Italian lentil soup. This is such a simple and comforting soup to make. As always, we recommend saving those Parmigiano rinds so you can add them to soups just like this one. We hope you enjoy this lentil soup recipe!

  1. There are many ways to make a great pot of lentil soup. You could start with some pancetta or Italian sausage. Or make a completely vegetarian or vegan version. The choice is yours. I usually add the good extra virgin and lots of grated cheese for finishing. As I always say, "Make it your own!". The written recipe is always linked in the description (it's the little "arrow" on mobile and a "show more" on desktop). In the description, you will also find my shop and other links with cookware/ingredients and all the other things you guys frequently ask about. Thanks as always for liking my videos!

  2. Lentils are a mainstay in my home. Super nutritious, flavorful, inexpensive and easy to prepare.
    Love that you did this, it's one of my favorites. I generally leave the tomatoes out when I do lentils, but other than that, your recipe is right on the money.

  3. I love that with so many of your videos, as you’re going through the ingredients I realize I have almost all of them in my pantry. That’s a sign of a good accessible achievable recipe in my eyes. I like that you don’t add a thousand different seasonings. The simple flavours can come through. Looking forward to making this! Thank you!

  4. In the last week I've made your sausage, beans, and greens pasta, Sunday sauce for braciole, and the pepper and egg sandwiches. Home runs all around! Thank you for all your hard work bringing your food to all of us!

    You have gotten me back into cooking and getting joy from it once again <3
