Fire up your kitchen with this zesty lentil soup. This makes a great meal when combined with a green salad and whole grain roll.

1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp oregano
2 bay leaves
4 oz can diced green chilies, undrained
1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
1 medium carrot, diced
1/4 cup lime juice
1 Tbsp, olive oil
1 Place first 6 ingredients in large pot. Bring to a boil and simmer until lentils are tender, about 20 minutes.
