A Note For Trim Healthy Mamas:
The fat listed in the Nutrition Info is the fat naturally present in lentils. This fat doesn't count toward your ADDED fats allowable for an E meal. 1 tablespoon of fat spread out over 5 quarts is basically no fat per cup. So having a teaspoon of butter on bread or oil in a salad dressing would be totally fine with this soup!
