Lentil and Spinach Soup

Happy 1st day of November! 

This time of the year I'm all about making great hot soups. 
So very comforting to sit down and have a nice hot bowl of soup. 

This one is Lentil and Spinach soup. 
Very low in calories and very filling. 
I even got Skip to eat it. Which is a surprise because he is not a spinach person. 

Makes 10 cups
