The lentils in this soup are a good source of protein, the spices provide nice flavor and everyone knows that vegetables, which are also in this recipe, are an essential part of a healthy diet.

1/2 teaspoon cumin

1/2 teaspoon oregano

2 bay leaves

4 ounce can of diced green chilies, undrained

1 medium red bell pepper, chopped

1 medium carrot, diced

1/4 cup lime juice

1 tablespoon olive oil

3. Add bell peppers and carrots and cook until the vegetables are tender.

4. Discard bay leaves before serving and serve with lime juice and olive oil.
