Lentil Potato Soup was one of the first soups that my kids tasted. They were still little kids and experimenting with different flavors and spices and they loved from the first time.. It’s a very hearty and filling soup. It’s good for dinner on a rainy winter night. It gives you the satisfaction of comfort food while offering all the benefits of healthy food. Try it for your kids and I’m sure they will love it!
