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
- 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.
