I really do like summer, but there are many reasons to like autumn, chief among them is it’s time for soup. I love making soup and enjoying it on those cool fall evenings and cold winter days. One of the first soups I am going to try this season is this recipe for Easy Lentil Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Bacon I found from the fine folks at Southern Living magazine.

About the recipe for Easy Lentil Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Bacon from Southern Living:

“We spiced up plain-Jane lentil soup with the addition of tender sweet potato chunks, fire-roasted tomatoes, and bacon. This rich, comforting, smoky soup is perfect if you are planning a tailgate event or weekend party because it can be prepared up to three days in advance and stored in the refrigerator. It tastes even better when the flavors have had a chance to marry.”
