Quick and Healthy Dinner

I've been meaning to do a recipe post for the longest time! A while ago, I made some Spinach-Lentil Soup that was to die for. Except I forgot to take pictures. Oh, and it's not my original recipe... I stole it from here.

But I'm still going to share it with you because it was THAT good!

The only thing I changed was to swap a can of diced tomatoes with chilies for the salsa, and to add 1 tsp each of cumin, garlic powder, and chili powder. I also substituted 3 cups of the water for 3 cups chicken stock.

When Max came home late that evening (because why else would I be cooking?) he gave me a funny look when I told him that we were having Spinach-Lentil Soup for dinner. But all it took was ONE TASTE and he was won over! It's just delicious!

Bonus? We made the leftovers stretch for an extra night when we put the soup over white rice. YUM!

Have you had any kitchen victories lately?
