Lentil Soup for Blood Sugar Balance

This soup is simple, delicious, and filled with wholesome nutrients and perfect for this chilly spring we’ve been having. This soup is also plant based which is perfect for #earthday!

This recipe is adapted by @thegoldenbalance and I’ve made some changes to it to make it more blood sugar friendly. I replaced potato for cauliflower which gives the soup the same creaminess with more nutrients and lower carbohydrates. I added in a few more spices, kept it plant based with vegetable stock and added a protein punch with hemp hearts.

Here’s what you need:
