Bloody Maria Red Lentil Soup

When it came time to make a soup for the Mix It Up Cookbook, we couldn't decide on one, so we made four! They are easy, perfectly spiced, freezable, and such a crowd pleaser! Be sure to check out all 4! 

Start with the Soup Base then add the ingredients to create the end flavor you're looking for! 

If you're like us, we usually Mix It Up with a Bloody Maria cocktail while dancing to music while we cook a big pot of soup!
