Anna Sultana's Lentil Soup, Maltese Style plus 6 Soup Links

The holiday season is here.
It’s time to serve traditional dishes.
Christmas is coming. 
It’s time to start saving to pay for all the gifts and holiday expenses.

Soup is a great money saver.
What’s not to love… 
a big pot of water filled with a little of this, and a little of that.

Most of the time the this or that is something economical.
Like bits of vegetables, or rice or lentils.
Pick up a bag of lentils and make a big pot of soup!
