This soup uses two types of lentils, red and brown. The red lentils will not hold their shape. They dissolve into the soup giving it a delicious creaminess that tastes great with the smoky broth and hearty potato and carrot hunks.
Lentils are a great source of protein and only take about 20 minutes to make. Combining lentils with orzo, a short-cut pasta shaped like a large grain of rice, makes a casserole that you’ll want to eat a lot of.
