This Mediterranean Spicy Spinach Lentil Soup is simply bursting with mediterranean flavors and ingredients. I love this spicy soup so much. It’s a real warmer on a cold day. I often make a double batch so I can take some for lunch the next day and I can tell you that I never look forward to my lunch more than when I bring a bowl of this soup!

It’s so easy to make too – simple fry off the veggies in stages. Then add broth and water and simmer until the lentils are cooked and soft. One tip – halfway through the cooking time, check the liquid levels. If the consistency is a bit thick, you might need to add a little bit of hot water. I serve this soup with warmed pita or a fresh rustic loaf if I have one.
