Make It Monday: Traditional Lentil Soup




Were you expecting another slow cooker meal from me with this one? Sorry to disappoint, but I do love my slow cooker. Lentil soup cooks up so quick that you don't need to plan ahead and have it cook all day. With only 45 minutes of cook time and about 10 minutes of prep time, this is an easy weeknight meal.


Traditional Lentil Soup
1 C dry lentils, rinsed and drained
5 C broth
2 medium carrots, chopped
1 medium onion, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp dried parsley
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp rubbed sage
1/8 ground pepper

Directions:

  • Rinse and drain lentils and put in a large pot with broth.
  • Chop vegetables. I use my food processor
  • Combine vegetables and seasonings in the pot and stir.
  • Bring to a boil.
  • Reduce to simmer and cover.
  • Cook for 40-45 minutes.
  • Enjoy!
