Lentil Borscht

I love anything with beets, including borscht, a soup featuring the veggie.  This variation on classic borscht contains fiber and protein rich lentils as an added boost to make it more substantial, and perfect for a comforting weeknight dinner.  This is easy to make and so good, it is perfect with some crusty sourdough bread and a salad on the side!
