Slow Cooker Lentil Soup

This delicious, clean and simple to make lentil soup is perfect for cold winter days. This recipe was inspired by my friend Betty Bechtold. I had never made lentil soup before, but she made it sound so good and easy to make and I can't resist a good slow cooker recipe. Enjoy!

1 Onion
2 cloves Garlic
1/2 Tbsp. Olive oil
1 box (32 oz.) Chicken stock
1 lb. Dry lentils
1 can (28 oz.) Crushed tomatoes
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Curry
1 tsp. Cinnamon

Slow cooker, at least 3 1/2 quarts
Large skillet

  • In a large skillet, saute the onion and garlic in the olive oil.
  • Rinse the lentils
  • Add all ingredients to the slow cooker
  • Cover and cook on HIGH for 3 1/2 hours

TIP: If you find the soup to be a little too thick when reheating, just add about a tablespoon of water to thin it out.
