I personally love all lentils, but the red ones are my favourite. They cook really fast and go slightly mushy, which makes the soup a bit more thicker.  They are packed with fiber, protein, minerals and vitamins, yet still low in calories and almost no fat or cholesterol. This spicy lentil soup is also a great freezer filler…… life’s a lot easier when you can come home to a nutritious and comforting meal that just needs heating. Soup is good when you have a cold .It helps keep you hydrated, but also helps to  speed up the movement of mucus through your nose which relieves congestion and makes you breath more freely! Let’s not forget ingredients such as chilli, garlic and turmeric helps to ease cold and flu symptoms too. One thing for sure ..it tastes way more better than cough syrup.
