Lentil Soup


Lentils are pretty cheap, really good for you, and most importantly, tasty. I like making them in the crockpot because I can just throw some stuff together and let it sit for a couple of hours. I make a bunch at a time because it lasts a while in the fridge and is still tasty as leftovers. Here’s what you need. 

  • 1 bag of lentils
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes
  • 2 cans of broth (I use vegetable but chicken works too)
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon of paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon of ground coriander (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cumin
  • salt
  • pepper

Optional ingredients:

  • diced onions
  • chopped celery
  • chopped carrots

I just put everything in the crockpot and let it do its thing on high for like 4-6 hours, stirring it occasionally. This makes more of like a stewed lentil, but if you want it to be not as thick and more soup like, just add some more broth or water.



I tried a #nomoreramen recipe today! This is Tortellini Soup. With added sausage. It’s really good!

looks so yummy! :) here is a link to the recipe for everyone else!
