This spicy lentil soup recipe is of my favorite soups and is easy to make. My wish is for you to have fun and enjoy this lifestyle, and eating delicious meals is part of the process. Enjoy!

Note: If you can’t find parboiled brown rice, you can use regular brown rice and add 20 minutes to the cooking time.
