Cooped up and cooking: Sweet potato, carrot, apple and red lentil soup

Fewer meals pair better with shorter, colder days than a hearty, hot soup. So join Chef Nino and “Cooped Up and Cooking” on Thursday, December 14, at noon EST as he shows you how to prepare his Sweet Potato Carrot Apple Red Lentil Soup. Many people know that legumes like lentils pack a lot of fiber, but they’re also known to be a big provider of glucose, which can help you stay energized, according to the Cleveland Clinic. #ThatsHumanCare
