Lentil Soup (from Clean Eating Mag)

Submitted by: TOMMYBR

Introduction

The recipe from clean eating called out generic vegetable broth. I used the one in this recipe. The difference makes this even better!
I also did not add any additional salt/pepper. The CE recipe called for 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice. I did not add to mine.
