I’m all about Weight Watchers Soup Recipes these days, and my Lentil, Beef, and Quinoa Soup was definitely one of my favorite new recipes that came out of my kitchen this week. I love soups that are hearty, and filling, and pretty much a complete meal in one bowl. The tender lentils and juicy ground beef are the stars of this soup. They add wonderful flavor and texture, and are complemented perfectly by the earthy quinoa, wholesome vegetables and incredible spices.

It’s a pretty easy soup to throw together, it delivers a lot of flavor, and is perfectly satisfying. The nourishing ingredients are a powerhouse of nutrition too…tons of fiber, protein, and vitamins. On a chilly fall day, this Lentil, Beef, and Quinoa Soup recipe makes a great lunch or dinner with little to no side dishes needed. I’d serve this with maybe a light green salad and nothing more. Reheats and freezes well too, so get this soup on your to do list soon! You won’t regret it.

  1. This was delicious and easy to make. It had a great beefy flavor that the men in my family love. It was nice and thick, so I was able to add some more beef broth and so I could have more leftovers for lunch.

    When are you going to allow printing of your recipes? I am tired of copy and paste to word to save a copy or print.
