Slow Cooker Lentil Soup

10 May

I‘m not sure what could be easier or lazier than making soup in a slow cooker. A good friend of mine gave me her unwanted slow cooker – I was ecstatic, because I was planning on buying one anyway. I love soup, but can’t stand the super salty stuff you get in cans. The great thing about lentils is that you don’t need to soak them overnight before making soup with them.

Prep Time: 15 minutes.

In a slow cooker (5 qt. or larger), put:

  • 1.5 cups lentils (rinsed)
  • 1.5 cups chopped carrots (about 4 average sized carrots)
  • 1.5 cups chopped celery
  • 1/2 large onion
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 3/4 tsp basil
  • 3/4 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 32 oz. chicken stock (1 box)
  • 3 cups water

Cook on LOW for 11 hours.
