Lentil and Garbanzo Soup

February 6, 2015

Author Notes: This is a great make-ahead soup. Not only does it taste better the next day, but it freezes beautifully. Simply portion into single servings, freeze, and then pop one in your lunch sack for work. It should be thawed out enough to reheat in the microwave when lunchtime rolls around.
