Vegan Lentil Soup - Welcoming Kitchen (Allergen-free and Gluten-free)

It's soup time! 
Soup is my go-to dinner in fall and winter. I eat the leftovers for lunch and send soup with my husband in a Thermos for his lunch at work. This Lentil Soup is just what I like -- filling and hearty. Since it's food-allergy friendly, gluten-free and vegan, you can serve it as a meal for company without any special-diet worries.
If you use a food processor to dice the vegetables in this easy recipe for lentil soup, it can be prepared in minutes. You can either use 7 1/2 cups of homemade or prepared vegetable stock or 3 vegan bouillon cubes mixed with 7 1/2 cups of water.  Adjust salt to taste, especially if the vegetable broth is low-salt or salt-free.
