Is lentil soup healthy?

If you’re wondering whether lentil soup is healthy, the answer is yes!

Lentils are high in fibre and high in minerals (digestive health). They are an excellent vegetarian source of protein, with protein accounting for 25% of the calories in lentils.

Lentils are a carbohydrate, but they burn slowly, so they keep you nourished for longer. Lentils may also be beneficial to heart health, according to research.
