With the weather cooling down, soup is the one food that always seems to hit the spot for us. It’s easy to make in large batches so you can just heat up it up on chilly nights when you’re looking for a quick meal.
If you’re a fan of soup, you’re going to LOVE this Lentil & Split Pea soup. It’s hearty, full of flavor, and seasoned to perfection. Using a spice blend consisting of onion, garlic, celery, turmeric, cumin, red pepper, etc, this soup has depth and a little bit of heat, too.
To package this soup up as a gift, you only need a few things: 1) a 16 oz. mason jar with a lid 2) a ribbon of your choosing 3) A tag with the directions on how to prepare the soup.
If you are digging the tag above, we have it available as a FREE download! CLICK HERE to grab it 🙂
From there, all your giftee has to do is add everything to a pot with water and cook it for 35 minutes. That’s it!

If you are going to put together a gift jar: Add all of the ingredients to a 16 oz. mason jar. You can either mix it all together or layer it in one by one like we did, from the start of the ingredients list to the end. Be sure that the bouillon cube is the last item you put in the jar so that it does not get lost in the mix/your giftee knows to unwrap it. Close the lid and decorate it/tag it as needed. You can download our free recipe tag here.
To prepare: Add all of the contents of the jar to a large pot, being sure to unwrap the bouillon cube, along with 7 cups of water. Bring everything to a boil. Once boiling, lower the heat to a simmer, cover the pot and cook for 35 minutes. Season with salt as needed and enjoy!
