I’m finding that the older I get, the more I really adore hearty soups for dinner, and this delicious crock pot vegetable lentil soup is my newest recipe find!
I originally found this recipe via an email sent by Forks Over Knives.
I made just a couple small changes to their recipe to suit our preferences, including replacing the spinach in the recipe with kale.
I LOVE kale in soups!
Forks Over Knives is a great site and it’s loaded with vegan recipes. You should definitely check it out when you get a chance!
Don’t worry, even if you’re not vegan or vegetarian, you’ll still love their wholesome, plant-based recipes.
I don’t have a ton of experience cooking with lentils, and that’s another reason I was drawn to this soup.
I’m anxious to get creative and find more ways I can incorporate lentils into healthy dinner recipes.
This crock pot vegetable lentil soup recipe is super versatile, as most veggie soups are. You can omit or swap the veggies that you don’t like to create the flavor you’re looking for.
Speaking of flavor, I was really excited and surprised by just how flavorful this vegetable lentil soup was—and without any meat!
Summer’s warm temperatures seem to have extended farther into the fall season that normal, but I don’t care, because I’m ready to put my slow cooker to work even if it never actually gets cold here in Ohio.
