Slow Cooker Lentil Soup on Comfort Food Night – Quick and Easy Dinner Ideas
Hi this is Pranika! Since we had a no-snow-snow day and had some time to kill last Friday, I asked the kids what they wanted to cook for dinner. They decided soup. But we didn’t want to spend hours in the kitchen either so, I settled on a slow cooker meal. It was something new, delicious, and perfect for a cold day.
1/3 large onion, diced
¼ large carrot, diced
4 cloves of garlic, diced
1 tsp Italian seasoning
1 ½ tsp sea salt
¼ tsp black pepper
16 oz bag dried lentils (2 cups)
1 can diced tomatoes and juice
1 48 oz. box of vegetable broth
2 cups of water
Hot sauce (optional)
Grated parmesan (optional)
Cook for 5.5 hours. Top with a sprinkle of grated parmesan and a few dashes of hot sauce as desired.
