Could easily be made vegetarian by switching out the chicken broth for vegetable broth.

Recipe Ingredients for Slow Cooker Lentil Soup

2 medium carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped mushrooms
1 medium onion
2 cloves of garlic
2 cups dry lentils
1/2 teaspoon thyme
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
8 cups low-sodium chicken broth

Recipe Directions for Slow Cooker Lentil Soup

  1. Chop 2 medium carrots, 2 celery stalks, about 5 button mushrooms, 1 medium onion and 2 cloves of garlic. Place in bottom of crock pot.

  2. Rinse and sort (pick out the bad ones) the dry lentils. Add on top of the veggies in the crock pot.

  3. Place 3 bay leaves on top (remove before serving) along with the thyme, salt & pepper. Pour 64 ounces of low-sodium chicken broth over everything and cook on low for about 6 hours.

  4. The original recipe called for 4 ounces of Canadian bacon (diced) to be added in the last 30 minutes but I omited that due to a low-sodium diet. However, I bought bacon bits that my family added in to their individual servings before eating.
