Easy Lentil Soup

I am more traditional in the food I make, but also open to something new and what I really like. Until recently, we considered creamy soups interesting but not as sensational as a simple soup. Well, now it seems that I have completely changed my mind - I had some experiences and moments when I had to experiment with various types of creamy soups and ready - I became a fan and I already do them periodically.

They have the greatest advantage and success in children, they taste good from whatever you make them, even from vegetables that you don't normally even look at on the plate. Sofia actually devoured this soup, especially with the homemade croutons that gave it an interesting flavor and consistency.

During this time, heat the other vegetables for an extra flavor and color to the soup.

So, in a little oil, heat 1 onion, carrot and pepper - cut even bigger pieces (they will be blended anyway, so you really don't have to worry about the aesthetics of cutting vegetables).
