VitaClay Does Meatless Monday! Lentil Soup with Goat Cheese Toast

Lentils are a favorite staple in the vegetarian kitchen. Packed full of protein, minerals and vitamins, this humble little legume packs a nutritional punch. Lentils come in several colors; and each color has its own unique nutritional profile, as well as a distinctive flavor. 

The goat cheese toast is an easy way to round out this recipe into a full meal. Top the lentil soup with a bit of sour cream or even mix in a spoonful of the goat cheese for even more flavor. The goat cheese has a bit of a tang that contrasts well with the smooth flavor of the lentils. 

The toast adds a crunchy bite that makes this meal very satisfying. Great for a Meatless Monday easy dinner! Just pop all of the soup ingredients into VitaClay and it's done!
