Broccoli and Pea Potage with Thyme (soup): I love soup! Soup can be so healthy and so satisfying. This broccoli and pea potage (potage: French pottage: meaning potted dish, thick soup, stew, or porridge) is filled with veggies and the addition of lentils bumps up the protein as well as the fiber content of the soup.
