Here’s a small vegetarian soup that forms a complete meal and feeding with legumes and starchy foods, in addition to it is a dish that fits the season and your closet. Personally I put leeks in cream of lentils but you can also substitute spinach, collard greens, or leaves of chard. A small tip, make this soup with your leftover rice or other grains (spelt, amaranth, quinoa) that will go just as well and the more it varies.

In short, do your little mixture and enjoy !
