Red Lentil Spinach Soup with Loma Foods Sazon Seasoning!

IMG_1105.jpg
I am all about soups this winter and I am particularly obsessed with red lentils. Recently a company named Loma Foods sent me a sample of their Sazon seasoning, a simple, pure and mix of spices – achiote, garlic, and oregano – with just a touch of sea salt and I knew, after smelling it, that it would make a flavorful red lentil soup.

And I was right! This stuff is amazing. And now I am obsessed with Sazon! I bet you will too after you make this soup. You can use it to season rice, potatoes or tofu too. I’ve been getting creative and will post more ideas as time goes on.

Note:

I like to use my homemade dried vegetable broth powder. You can find the recipe here. If you don’t want to make your own, replace some or all of the water with homemade or store bought vegetable broth.
