It’s no secret, I LOVE lentils. They’re one of my favourite vegetarian proteins that is not only easy to digest, but good for your gut microbiota!

This Greek Lentil Soup is something I make a big batch of every Fall, and freeze in individual containers for grab-and-go lunches all winter.

Serve with a slice of toasted sour dough, and you have yourself the perfect Fall lunch! I’ve provided some low FODMAP modifications below as well! Enjoy!
